the Personal Stamp issue for Pope Francis' Visit to Cyprus

The institution of the Commissioner for Administration and the Protection of Human Rights was introduced in Cyprus in 1991 as the main extra-judicial mechanism of monitoring the administration to establish whether its actions violate the human rights or infringe the laws and regulations of good administration and correct behaviour. Ever since, the Commissioner's powers have been expanded with additional competences, by virtue of the EU law and the UN conventions ratified by the Republic of Cyprus.

In particular, the Commissioner is competent to act as Equality Body, National Preventative Mechanism against Torture, National Human Rights Institution (NHRI) in line with the Paris Principles, as Independent Mechanism for the Promotion, Protection and Monitoring of the UN Convention for the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and as Independent Mechanism for Monitoring Forced Return Procedures.

Based on these competences, in the last thirty years the Commissioner has been established as the main independent Official for the protection of human rights in Cyprus.

North Cyprus (Turkish Cypriot) 9 December 2021
 
"Centenary of the Acceptance of the National Anthem" 
and  "Anniversary of the opening of Maras to the public

 

Centenary of the Acceptance of the National Anthem.
Mehmet Akif's poem titled "Our Hero Army", immediately after its adoption as the National Anthem by the Turkish Parliament in Ankara on March 12 in 1921, was adopted by the Turkish Cypriots; the island press, despite being under British colonial rule, boldly printed the text of the National Anthem.
The National Anthem was sung "whistling" on the streets by the Turkish Cypriots, even at the periods when the British colonial administration banned national symbols and anthems; the British ban was somehow pierced. Besides the Republic of Turkey, it is also sung as the national anthem of the TRNC.

Anniversary of the opening of Maras to the public.
One year has passed since Democracy Street and a part of the coast in Maras, which was one of the most famous holiday centers of the Mediterranean before 1974 and are within the borders of TRNC, have opened to visitors by the decision of the Councile of Ministers.

The entry of visitors to Maras, which has been the subject of the agenda from time to time in the negotiations to find a solution to the Cyprus problem, started on October 8, 2020 after the arrangements made 46 years later.

More than 300 thousand people visited the open part of Maras until today.
