Announcement regarding an appeal by individuals to the International Criminal Court

Since 1974, Turkey has implemented a systematic policy of colonization of the occupied part of Cyprus, from which it expelled approximately 170.000 Greek Cypriots, in an attempt to change the demographic character of the island and create faits accomplis. This Turkish policy for the alteration of the demography of Cyprus has been condemned by the General Assembly, the Commission of Human Rights and the Council of Europe. The policy of colonization is expressly prohibited by the 4th Geneva Convention of 1949 Relative to the Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of War (Article 49 (6)), which stipulates that the “Occupying Power shall not deport or transfer parts of its own civilian population into the territory it occupies.” According to the 1998 Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court (Article 8 (2) (b) (viii)), “the transfer, directly or indirectly, by the Occupying Power of parts of its own civilian population into the territory it occupies, or the deportation or transfer of all or parts of the population of the occupied territory within or outside this territory” is a war crime.-29.07.2014
