Turkey declares that its ratification of the Convention For The Protection of Individuals With Regard to Automatic Processing Of Personal Data neither amounts to any form of recognition of the Greek Cypriot Administration's pretention to represent the defunct “Republic of Cyprus” as party to that Convention, nor should it imply any obligation on the part of Turkey to enter into any dealing with the so-called Republic of Cyprus within the framework of the said Convention.

Bezwaar Cyprus, 29-07-2016

The Republic of Cyprus has examined the declaration deposited by the Republic of Turkey upon ratification of the Convention for the Protection of Individuals with regard to Automatic Processing of Personal Data (ETS No. 108), registered at the Secretariat General of the Council of Europe on 2 May 2016.
The Republic of Turkey declares that its ratification of the Convention for the Protection of Individuals with regard to Automatic Processing of Personal Data 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, which, it is to be noted, expressly provides that no reservations may be made in respect to its provisions. 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. Such declaration is incompatible with the principle that inter-State reciprocity has no place in the context of human rights treaties. Furthermore, it 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 its entirety, between the Republic of Cyprus and the Republic of Turkey.

Bezwaar Griekenland, 31-01-2017

The Government of the Hellenic Republic has examined the declaration made by the Republic of Turkey upon ratification, on May 2nd 2016, of the Convention for the Protection of Individuals with regard to Automatic Processing of Personal Data.
The Republic of Turkey inter alia declares that its ratification of the Convention should not imply any obligation on the part of Turkey to enter into any dealing with the Republic of Cyprus within the framework of the said Convention.
The Government of the Hellenic Republic is of the view that the above declaration in fact amounts to a reservation, as it purports to exclude the application of the Convention in its entirety between Turkey and the Republic of Cyprus, and would like to recall that according to Article 25 of the Convention, no reservation may be made in respect of the provisions of this Convention.
Furthermore, the Government of the Hellenic Republic notes that the above reservation made by the Republic of Turkey to the Convention for the Protection of Individuals with regard to Automatic Processing of Personal Data, which concerns the endowment of individuals with rights, is incompatible with the principle that inter-State reciprocity has no place in the context of human rights treaties. Such a reservation also prevents the realisation of inter-State cooperation under the Convention.
The Government of the Hellenic Republic, therefore, considers that the aforesaid reservation of Turkey is impermissible as prohibited by Article 25 of the Convention for the Protection of Individuals with regard to Automatic Processing of Personal Data and as contrary to the object and purpose of this Convention.
For the above reasons, the Government of the Hellenic Republic objects to the declaration made by the Republic of Turkey upon ratification of the said Convention.
This objection shall not preclude the entry into force of the Convention between the Hellenic Republic and the Republic of Turkey.
