26-03-2019

The Republic of Cyprus has examined the Declaration contained in the instrument of ratification deposited by the Republic of Turkey with the Secretary General of the OECD on 26 March 2018, upon ratification of the Convention on Mutual Administrative Assistance in Tax Matters of 25th January 1988, (No.127).
The Republic of Turkey declares that its ratification of the Convention on Mutual Administrative Assistance in Tax Matters of 25th January 1988, (No.127) neither amounts to any form of recognition of the Republic of Cyprus, as party to that Convention, nor should it imply any obligation on the part of the Republic of Turkey to enter into any dealing with the Republic of Cyprus within the framework of the said Convention.
In the view of the Republic of Cyprus, the content and purported effect of this Declaration makes it tantamount in its essence to a reservation contrary to the object and purpose of the Convention. By such Declaration, the Republic of Turkey purports to evade its obligations under the Convention vis-à-vis another equal and sovereign State Party, namely the Republic of Cyprus. Indeed, the Declaration prevents the realization of cooperation between State Parties foreseen by the Convention.
The Republic of Cyprus therefore strongly rejects the aforesaid Declaration made by the Republic of Turkey and considers such declaration to be null and void. The aforementioned objections by the Republic of Cyprus shall not preclude the entry into force of the Convention, in their entirety, between the Republic of Cyprus and the Republic of Turkey.
Regarding the Republic of Turkey’s pretension, as expressed in the same Declaration, that “the Republic of Cyprus is defunct and that there is no single authority which in law or in fact is competent to represent jointly the Turkish Cypriots and the Greek Cypriots and consequently Cyprus as a whole”, the Republic of Cyprus would like to remind of the following:
Despite, being, through binding international agreements, a guarantor of “the independence, territorial integrity and security of the Republic of Cyprus” (Article II of the 1960 Treaty of Guarantee), the Republic of Turkey illegally invaded Cyprus in 1974 and continues since then occupying 36.2% of the territory of the Republic.
The illegality of such aggression was made manifested by the U.N. Security Council Resolutions 541 (1983) and 550 (1984). Resolution 541’s operative paragraph 2 considers “the declaration [of the Turkish Cypriot authorities of the purported secession of part of the Republic of Cyprus] as legally invalid and “calls for its withdrawal”. Paragraph 6 then “calls upon all States to respect the sovereignty, independence, territorial integrity and non-alignment of the Republic of Cyprus” and further at par. 7 “calls upon all States not to recognize any Cypriot state other than the Republic of Cyprus”. Resolution 550, operative para. 2, also ”condemns all secessionist actions, including the purported exchange of Ambassadors between Turkey and the Turkish Cypriot leadership, declares them illegal and invalid, and calls for their immediate withdrawal”. Para. 3 then “reiterates the call upon all States not to recognize the purported state of the “Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus” set up by secessionist acts and calls upon them not to facilitate or in any way assist the aforesaid secessionist entity”.
The European Court of Human Rights additionally, in its Judgment of 10th May 2001 on the Fourth Interstate Application of Cyprus v. Turkey, found, at para. 77, that Turkey, which has ”effective control over northern Cyprus“, is responsible for securing all human rights under the European Convention on Human Rights and for violations of such rights by her own soldiers or officials, or by the local administration, which are imputable to Turkey. The responsibilities of the occupying power emanate from international humanitarian law, including the Fourth Geneva Convention.
Turkey is responsible for the policies and actions of the “TRNC” because of the effective control she exercises through her army. Her responsibility is engaged by virtue of the acts of the local administration, which survives by virtue of Turkish military and other support (Cyprus v. Turkey, Judgment, 10 May 2001, at pp. 20-21, reiterating Loizidou). From the judgments of the European Court of Human Rights and the Security Council Resolutions on Cyprus, it is evident that the international community does not regard the “TRNC” (Turkey’s subordinate local administration in occupied Cyprus, condemned in the strongest terms by the Security Council ) as a State under international law (Cyprus v. Turkey, 10 May 2001, para. 61). In contrast, the Republic of Cyprus has repeatedly been held to be the sole legitimate Government of Cyprus, contrary to Turkey’s assertions about that Government, which Turkey calls “the Greek Cypriot Administration” with pretences “to represent the defunct Republic”. The Turkish assertions constitute a propaganda ploy to divert attention from Turkey’s responsibility for the violations in occupied Cyprus. Turkey’s assertions and her assorted objections to the Republic of Cyprus’ authority, jurisdiction and sovereignty, and her claims on behalf of the Turkish Cypriots and the “TRNC”, have repeatedly been rejected by the international community and relevant judicial bodies where such claims were fully argued and then rejected in Cyprus’s pleadings. Misrepresentations about the treatment of Turkish Cypriots by the Government of Cyprus were made. (These claims were repeated in Turkey’s current Declaration). In fact, the European Court of Human Rights and the Commission accepted Cyprus arguments and refutation of Turkish assertions and exaggerations about the period prior to Turkey’s invasion of Cyprus in July 1974. It refused to pronounce on Turkey’s version of the ejection of Turkish Cypriots from offices of State (there was in fact a Turkish boycott).
It is now time for the relevant pronouncement in Resolutions and the decisions therein, as well as in judgments of the European Court of Human Rights to be heard and acted upon. The Court itself insisted in its 12 May 2014 Just Satisfaction Judgment that this must happen once the Court had spoken (Cyprus v. Turkey, p. 23 Joint Concurring Judgment of nine Judges). It should be emphasized that, the Security Council repeatedly reaffirmed all its relevant Resolutions on Cyprus, having, over several decades and reiterated their content.
Nevertheless, the Republic of Turkey, not only flagrantly holds in contempt all relevant U.N. Resolutions, International Law rules and the U.N. Charter on the matter, but furthermore she continues violating international legality, by systematically questioning the legitimacy of the Republic of Cyprus and further promoting the illegal secessionist entity in the occupied part of the Republic of Cyprus, including through declarations, as the one at hand.

The French Republic wishes to clarify the declaration transmitted on 25 May 2005, when it deposited its instrument of approval of the Convention, and confirmed on 18 October 2007, which reads as follows:

In accordance with Article 29, paragraph 1, France intends to reserve the application of this Convention to the European and Overseas Départements of the French Republic, including the territorial sea and, beyond it, the areas over which, in accordance with international law, the French Republic has sovereign rights for the purpose of exploring and exploiting the natural resources of the seabed and its subsoil and superjacent waters.”

Germany

28-08-2015

In accordance with Article 30, paragraph 1.b, of the Convention, the Federal Republic of Germany reserves the right – with respect with all taxes, contributions and ancilliary payments listed in Article 2, paragraph 1, of the Convention – not to provide assistance in recovery in accordance with Articles 11 to 16 of Section II of the Convention.
I. Interpretative declaration by the Federal Republic of Germany.
The Federal Republic of Germany makes reference to the spirit and purpose of the Convention drafted under the auspices of the OECD and the Council of Europe: namely, to regulate the exchanges of data in purely tax-related procedures, with the aim of achieving better taxation. It is therefore the understanding of the Federal Republic of Germany that the Convention, in particular Article 4 thereof, covers only the exchange of data in purely tax-related matters, with the consequence that data transmitted on the basis of the Convention may not be used for other purposes, in particular for criminal proceedings that are not related solely to tax crimes, without the consent of the State transmitting the data. The Convention does not cover international legal assistance in criminal and civil matters.
In this connection, the Federal Republic of Germany would also like to emphasise that it is obligated – by its constitution, the Basic Law, by its public policy (ordre public), and as a Contracting Party to the European Convention on Human Rights and other fundamental instruments for the protection of human rights – to uphold minimum standards of human rights; accordingly, data will not be transmitted in proceedings that could lead to the imposition of death penalty or that threaten to violate minimum standards of human rights and due process.
The Federal Republic of Germany believes that its position in this regard is backed up by the Council of Europe’s legal stance on the prohibition of the death penalty and on compliance with minimum standards of human rights. As a result, the Federal Republic of Germany assumes that the present Convention, concluded under the auspices of the Council of Europe, may under no circumstances lead to the imposition of the death penalty or to the violation of minimum standards of human rights. Against this background, it follows that the Convention can be interpreted only in such a way that the data transmitted on the basis of the Convention may under no circumstances be used in proceedings that could lead to the imposition of the death penalty or to the violation of minimum standards of human rights.
II. Declaration on safeguards by the Federal Republic of Germany
With respect to Article 21 and Article 22 of the Convention, the Federal Republic of Germany declares that it shall consider itself obligated to transmit tax data relating to individuals or companies (hereinafter referred to as “data”) only if the receiving Party (hereinafter referred to as the “receiving agency”) complies with the following safeguards:
1. The receiving agency may use the data in compliance with Article 22 and shall be subject to the conditions prescribed by the transmitting agency. The use of data for any purpose not listed in paragraph 1 of Article 4 and paragraph 2 of Article 22 shall be permissible only with the prior consent of the Federal Republic of Germany. This shall apply in particular to the use of such data as evidence before a court dealing with general criminal matters that are not purely tax-related. To this extent the procedures for mutual judicial assistance in criminal matters and, for Member States of the European Union, procedures regarding cross-border cooperation in criminal matters, shall remain unaffected.
The Federal Republic of Germany shall not consider itself obliged to transmit tax data if the use of such data would violate the Federal Republic of Germany’s public policy (ordre public) or essential interests within the meaning of paragraph 2 of Article 21 of the Convention.
Insofar as the data transmitted are disclosed in court proceedings or in a court decision, the receiving Party shall ensure that such disclosure will not lead to the imposition or exectution of the death penalty against persons whose data were transmitted or to the use of such data, without the consent of the transmitting Party, for other purposes not covered by the Convention.
2. The receiving agency shall document the receipt of the personal data transmitted. At the request of the competent authority of the Federal Republic of Germany, the receiving agency shall provide information on the use of the transmitted data, the results achieved thereby, and the consequences of the use of the data.
3. In the event that inaccurate data, or data which should not have been transmitted, have been transmitted, the receiving agency shall be obliged to correct or delete such data without delay following notification by the transmitting agency.
4. The receiving agency shall inform the person or company whose data were transmitted of the collection of such data in the Federal Republic of Germany. The persons or companies concerned need not be informed if and as long as, on balance, it is considered that the public interest in not informing them outweighs their right to be informed. Such persons or companies must be subsequently informed without delay if the reasons for not informing them no longer apply.
5. With reference to paragraph 3 of Article 4 of the Convention, it is pointed out that the persons or companies whose data are concerned shall, in their request, be informed by the competent German authority as to what data were transmitted, to which receiving agency, and for what purpose. The persons or companies concerned need not be informed if and as long as, on balance, it is considered that the public interest in not informing them outweighs their right to be informed. Such persons or companies must be subsequently informed without delay if the reasons for not informing them no longer apply.
6. The receiving agency shall bear liability in accordance with its domestic law in the event that any persons or companies suffer unlawful damage due to the erroneous use of data transmitted as part of the exchange of data pursuant to this Convention.
7. Where German law provides for specific deadlines for deleting the transmitted data or deadlines for reviewing whether such data should be deleted, the transmitting agency of the Federal Republic of Germany shall inform the receiving agency accordingly. The receiving agency shall ensure compliance with such deadlines. In any case, the transmitted data shall be deleted as soon as they are no longer required for the purpose for which they were transmitted.
8. The receiving agency shall be obliged to take effective measures to protect the transmitted data against unauthorised access, unauthorised alteration and unauthorised disclosure.
9. In accordance with the third sentence of paragraph 2 of Article 22 of the Convention, the persons and authorities referred to in the first sentence of paragraph 2 may, notwithstanding the provisions of paragraph 1, disclose information in public court proceedings or in judicial decisions relating to taxes in question.
The Governement of the Federal Republic of Germany interprets the third sentence of paragraph 2 of Article 22 to mean that, the disclosure of such information in public court proceedings or in judicial decisions also includes disclosure in preliminary investigation by a public prosecutor.
Under German Law, confidentiality cannot be guaranteed in all preliminary investigations by public prosecutors, because in Germany the principle of confidentiality may be overridden with reference to the right of access to information not only in court proceedings but also in preliminary criminal investigations.

The Republic of Cyprus objects to the declaration deposited by the Republic of Turkey at the time of signature of the instrument on 3 November 2011, limiting the implementation of the provisions of the Convention and the Protocol only to the States with which the Republic of Turkey has diplomatic relations.

Until the withdrawal of the aforementioned reservations, the Republic of Armenia declares that it will be unable to ensure the application of the Convention and Protocol in respect of the Republic of Azerbaijan and the Republic of Turkey.

The Minister of Finance or his authorised representative.
Annex C – Definition of the term "national" for the purpose of the Convention
All individuals possessing Turkish nationality in accordance with the Turkish Nationality Code, and all legal persons, partnership or association deriving their status as such from the laws in force in Turkey.
The Republic of Turkey declares, pursuant to Article 29, paragraph 1, of the Convention, that with respect to Turkey the Convention shall apply to the territory of the Republic of Turkey, including territorial sea and the airspace above it, as well as the maritime areas over which it has sovereign rights or jurisdiction for the purpose of exploration, exploitation and conservation of natural resources, pursuant to international law.
The Republic of Turkey declares that it will implement the provisions of this Convention and the Protocol only to the States Parties with which it has diplomatic relations.
Turkey declares that its ratification of the “Convention on Mutual Administrative Assistance in Tax Matters” neither amounts to any form of recognition of the Greek Cypriot Administration’s pretention to represent the defunct “Republic of Cyprus” as party to the Convention, nor should it imply any obligations on the part of Turkey to enter into any dealing with the so-called Republic of Cyprus within the framework of the said Convention.
The Republic of Cyprus was founded as a Partnership State in 1960 by Greek and Turkish Cypriots in accordance with international treaties. This partnership was destroyed by the Greek Cypriot side when it unlawfully seized the state by forcibly ejecting all Turkish Cypriot members in all the state organs in 1963. Eventually, Turkish Cypriots who were excluded from the Partnership State in 1963 have organized themselves under their territorial boundaries and exercise governmental authority, jurisdiction and sovereignty. There is no single authority which in law or in fact is competent to represent jointly the Turkish Cypriots and the Greek Cypriots and consequently Cyprus as a whole. Thus, the Greek Cypriots cannot claim authority, jurisdiction or sovereignty over the Turkish Cypriots who have equal status, or over the entire Island of Cyprus.

Objection Armenia, 06-02-2020

The Republic of Armenia objects to the declaration of the Republic of Azerbaijan dated 23 May 2014, registered at the Secretariat General of the OECD on 23 September 2014 and confirmed at the time of ratification of the Protocol on 29 May 2015, and to the declaration of the Republic of Turkey dated 19 October 2011, handed over to the Secretary General of the OECD on 3 November 2011 and confirmed in the instrument of ratification deposited with the Secretary General of the OECD on 26 March 2018, both limiting the implementation of the provisions of the Convention and Protocol only to the States with which the Republic of Azerbaijan and the Republic of Turkey have diplomatic relations.
The aforementioned declarations, which attempt to modify or limit the rights and obligations under the Convention, constitute, in fact, reservations and neither fall under the scope or Article 30 of the Convention, nor are compatible with the object and purpose of the Convention to establish a framework for the cooperation between the member States of the Council of Europe, therefore, as such shall be considered null and void.
Until the withdrawal of the aforementioned reservations, the Republic of Armenia declares that it will be unable to ensure the application of the Convention and Protocol in respect of the Republic of Azerbaijan and the Republic of Turkey.
