The First Cyprus Case

The First Cyprus Case

(p.924) 18 The First Cyprus Case
Human Rights and the End of Empire


Oxford University Press

This chapter describes the attempts by Greece to internationalize her dispute with the UK over the EOKA movement in Cyprus, and the allegations of human rights violations there, and of the consternation in London when Greece formerly began proceedings against the UK under the European Convention in Application 176/56. It describes the processes whereby the decision was taken to resist this application within the terms of the Convention, and gives a detailed account of the conduct of the case, the arguments on admissibility, concessions proposed and made by the UK, the texts of the documents submitted by the parties, and the attempts to achieve a friendly settlement. It describes the appointment of a sub-commission to investigate the facts, and the considerable but eventually unsuccessful attempts to prevent it visiting Cyprus.

Keywords:   Cyprus, Greece, admissibility, friendly settlement, sub-commission
