      US commission urges Turkey to respect church property ruling

      Oxford, Ohio (ENI). The United States Commission on International Religious
      Freedom has called on the government of Turkey to implement immediately a
      ruling by the European Court of Human Rights to return or pay for
      confiscated land taken from the Orthodox church more than a decade ago. The
      European court ruled unanimously in mid-2008 that Turkey, with regard to
      this matter, was in violation of the European Convention on Human Rights
      protocol on property rights. The case concerned an orphanage, on the Turkish
      island of Buyukada, owned by the Istanbul-based Ecumenical Patriarchate.
