Evkaf demands involvement in Varosha compensation case

Evkaf demands involvement in Varosha compensation case

The TRNC High Administrative Court is examining a dispute between the Greek Cypriot company Michaelides Brothers Mediterranean Tours Ltd, which had filed an application to the Immovable Property Commission (IPC) demanding the return of its hotel in the fenced off city of Varosha and compensation of 34 million euro 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.

According to Kibris Gazetesi, the company had filed an application to the IPC in 2012 and afterwards filed a demand with the high court to speed up the case because the IPC had involved the EVKAF in the case.

In 2015, the high court, led by one judge, annulled the decision to allow involvement of the EVKAF in the case. However, the EVKAF and the Attorney General’s office have filed an appeal to reverse the decision.

Yesterday, lawyers representing both sides addressed the high court, which was headed by three judges.
