Whether, for the purposes of former Article 26 (current Article 35(1)), remedies available in the ‘Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus’ should be regarded as ‘domestic remedies’.

Whether Article 2 imposed an obligation upon states to provide medical care, and whether the state had an obligation to conduct an effective investigation into the fate of persons who went missing after last being seen in the custody of the authorities during the conduct of military operations in circumstances where there was no proof that any of the missing persons had been unlawfully killed.

Whether there had been a violation of Article 9 of the ECHR in respect of Greek Cypriots living in northern Cyprus on account of the effects of restrictions placed on their freedom of movement which limited access to places of worship and participation in other aspects of religious life.

Whether there had been a violation of Article 3 in that the Greek Cypriots living in the Karpas area of northern Cyprus had been subjected to discrimination amounting to degrading treatment.

Whether the courts in northern Cyprus were ‘established by law’ in the sense of Article 6(1) even though they had been established by a government that was not recognized internationally.
