Loizidou v. Turkey
European Court of Human Rights
(1995) 310 ECHR (ser. A) 7
Loizidou (plaintiff) was a Greek Cypriot who claimed Turkish military forces kept her from property she owned in Northern Cyprus. While Loizidou protested against the Turkish government, Turkish Cypriot police detained her. Loizidou brought a case against Turkey (defendant) before the European Court of Human Rights. Loizidou claimed the Turkish government’s denial of access to her property in Northern Cyprus and her arrest by Turkish Cypriot police violated the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR). In response, Turkey argued that when Turkey joined the ECHR, it included a declaration restricting acceptance of the ECHR to Turkish national territories, excluding Northern Cyprus.
