Orams and Another v Apostolides: QBD 6 Sep 2006

The court was asked whether an English court can recognise and enforce an order of the court of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus.
Held: Judgements of the courts of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus were not enforceable in England. The Republic was not recognised either by the UK or by any other country save Turkey. Jack J said: ‘Just as the respondent could not rely on acquia against his own government . . He could not rely on the acquis against the appellants to enforce his judgment against them.’
