Judges at the European Court of Human Rights have awarded €135,000 in damages to Anthousa Iordanou after declaring that Turkey breached her property rights.
Anthousa Iordanou v. Turkey (no. 46755/99)
In a judgment announced today, the Court also awarded the applicant EUR 8,000 for costs and expenses following an Article 41 ruling.
The applicant claimed that the Turkish occupation of the northern part of Cyprus deprived her of access to her property.
In a judgment of 24 November 2009, the Court held that there had been a violation of Article 1 of Protocol No. 1 (protection of property) but declared that the question of the application of Article 41 (just satisfaction) was not ready for decision at that time.
