Real estate in Constantinople

istanbul04The final act of the long-standing legal dispute between the Fokas brothers and the Turkish state – which lasted more than 18 years – was the fact that Turkey did not exercise the right of appeal against a European Court decision by the deadline, December 29, 2009. The ruling, which vindicates the two brothers and sentences Turkey to pay the value of the inheritance (over 24 million euros), is now irrevocable and immediately applicable.
When it was issued, the European Court ruling was hailed by Greek political leaders as “historic”. Turkey’s decision not to appeal the ruling has both legal and political importance, according to the Fokas’ lawyer, indicating that defence of human rights and individual freedoms is above flags, nationalities and religions.
