The Turkish Cypriot lawyer who represents Greek Cypriots at the Immovable Property Commission (IPC) Murat Hakki, has said that the Evkaf’s persistence on the issue of who owns Maras/Varosha could cause the collapse of the IPC.

Speaking to ‘Havadis’ newspaper, Hakki noted that because the Evkaf insists that Maras belongs to them, many of his Greek Cypriot clients have filed applications directly to the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) instead of applying to the IPC, believing that the local remedy option was exhausted.

Should the applications to the ECHR be accepted, the function of the IPC will come to an end, Hakki warned.
