Disy seeks advice from legal experts over Varosha

It is very important for the Greek Cypriot side to realise that what they have been fearing, thinking and believing with regards to the fenced-off area of Varosha in Famagusta was slowly becoming a reality due to Turkey’s actions, ruling Disy leader Averof Neophytou said on Wednesday.

Neophytou was speaking after a meeting he and senior party officials had with a group of prominent lawyers and academics to discuss the legal issue surrounding Varosha, which under UN resolutions, must not be resettled.

One of the lawyers, Achilleas Demetriades, laid out the legal issues in an article published on Wednesday in the Cyprus Mail.

The Turkish Cypriot ‘government’ backed by Turkey, despite international condemnation, last week partially opened the ghost town that has been under Turkish military control since 1974, allowing access to the main beach, which was visited by around 2,000 people.

After Wednesday’s meeting, Neophytou said: “For us at Disy, the Cyprus issue was and remains primarily a political issue. That is why we had and still have the clear position to resume the dialogue as soon as possible to find a comprehensive solution on the agreed basis of a bizonal, bicommunal federation based on European laws and principles.”

At the same time, he added, the party was hearing opinions from experts, constitutionalists and lawyers and academics on some legal aspects that have to do with Varosha so that the right decisions can be taken ahead of time instead of running to figure them out after the fact.
