Indemnity pressure on Turkey

Indemnity pressure on Turkey


European Court of Human Rights has increased the pressures on Turkey for the indemnity decision taken at the Louzidu trial, to be practiced.
Turkey was convicted to pay 875 thousand dolars of indemnity with the decision of the European Court of Human Rights taken in July, 1998. The fact that Turkey has not yet paid the indemnity has created problems between Ankara and Strasbourg.
It is reported that Halldor Asgrimsonn from the European Council has sent Ismail Cem a warning letter stating that the court's decision is binding and that the indemnity needs to be paid.
Despite the court decision, Ankara believes that the Cyprus problems is political and that personal problems in the island should first be solved in Cyprus defending that the case of Loizidu should not be handled as an individual case.
Turkey who has not found the court's decisions satisfying is the only country who does not carry out the decisions of the European Court of Human Rights.
