Halide Cakir And Others v Cyprus: ECHR 29 Apr 2010

Admissibility. It was said of the events in Cyprus in 1974 there had been a failure by the state to investigate unlawful killings. The court repeated the Grand Chamber’s formulation of the relevant law in Silih and Varnava, and then pointed out that the killings in question occurred more than 14 years before Cyprus accorded the right to petition – on 1 January 1989. The court relied on the proposition that the critical date was that date, rather than the date on which Cyprus acceded to the Convention.
