Cyprus – 50 th Anniversary of The European Court of Human Rights 12.11.2009
The European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg is a supra-national court, established by the European Convention on Human Rights, which provides legal recourse of last resort for individuals who feel that their human rights have been violated by a contracting party to the Convention. Application before the court can also be brought by other contracting parties. The Convention was adopted under the auspices of the Council of Europe, all 47 of whose member states are parties to the Convention. This First Day Cover and the stamp was issued by Cyprus to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the Organisation. This lovely card was sent to me by Maria. This FDC came in a cover with some pretty Cypriot stamps which are also being displayed.
