Cypriot citizens are the real winners from the European Convention on Human Rights and its application by the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) in Strasbourg, say jurists who spoke to CNA.
 
The European Convention on Human Rights entered into force on September 3, 1953 and Cyprus ratified it in 1961, shortly after gaining independence. CNA asked Myron Nicolatos, President of the Supreme Court, Achilleas Demetriades, a Human Rights lawyer and Christos Pourgourides, a lawyer and former Member of the House of Representatives with PACE experience, to evaluate the wins and losses for Cyprus.
