The issue relates to land in South Cyprus of the Barutçuzade Ahmet Vasıf Efendi Vakıf religious foundation, Murat Metin Hakkı, a lawyer involved in the case, said this week.

Proceedings in the “pilot” case have reached an end in South Cyprus courts, he said.

Mr Hakkı, in a written statement, said that the foundation concerned was formed in 1918 and that its first trustee was Mehmet Münir, with the current trustee being his grandson İnci Hakkı.

Murat Metin Hakkı said the area in question is located close to the Ledra Palace checkpoint on the left side of the Cyprus Museum on Egypt Avenue, where there is “4.5 dönüms of land”.

He said the “Fulbright Centre, Egyptian embassy, electricity firm and a hotel” were all located on the land.

The Fulbright centre and Egyptian embassy have since been “emptied of tenants and is currently occupied by the Greek Cypriot Ministry of Interior, which had acquired as a guardian these properties for the Greek Cypriot Antiquities Department,” Mr Hakkı said.
