The case of Loizidouv. Turkey was last considered in the Committee of Ministers on 9 February, and will next be considered there on 30 March.
Responsibility for implementing the judgment lies with Turkey. Turkey has confirmed its wish to uphold the authority of the European Court of Human Rights, but has informed the Committee of the difficulties which, in its view, flow from the judgment. We have made clear to Turkey the need to respect the Court's judgment. We have reminded Turkey in the Committee of Ministers of their responsibilities in this respect, most recently on 9 February, and will continue to do so.
