ECHR notes lack of cooperation between Cyprus and Turkey in murder case

Lack of cooperation between Cyprus and Turkey resulted in an ineffective investigation in a murder case, the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) said on Tuesday in its judgment concerning a case related to the murder of three Turkish Cypriots who were shot dead in the southern government-controlled areas of Cyprus on January 15, 2005. The Court held, by five votes to two, that each respondent Government was to pay each applicant 8,500 euros in respect of non-pecuniary damage.
