EVKAF appeal to be considered in IPC claim postponed indefinitely

14 May 2016

A case put before the TRNC High Court regarding the demand of the EVKAF religious foundation to be included in the compensation claim by Greek Cypriot company Michaelides Brothers Mediterranean Tours Ltd, filed with the Immovable Property Commission (IPC), has been adjourned indefinitely.

The businessman’s family had filed an application to the IPC demanding the return of their property located in the fenced off city of Varosha and compensation of 34 million euros for loss of use.

At the time, the EVKAF religious foundation had made attempts to get involved in the case, claiming that the property belonged to Abdullah Pasa Foundation.

The company filed an application to the IPC in 2012 and afterwards filed a demand with the High Court to speed up the process because the IPC had involved the EVKAF in the case.

In 2015, the High Court annulled the decision to allow EVKAF involvement. However, the EVKAF and the Attorney General’s office filed an appeal to reverse the decision. On Thursday, the case was adjourned sine die.
