Cyprus Airways pilot appeal pending


first_imgThe European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) is expected to issue its decision on Tuesday in an appeal filed by a trainee pilot who was fired by Cyprus Airways more than 20 years ago.According to a statement, Charalambos Nikolas, who has Cypriot and British nationality, filed a case against the now-defunct Cyprus Airways in 1998 for unlawful dismissal and defamation. The case was dismissed both by the District Court in 2006 and by the Supreme Court in 2010.According to CNA, Nikolas then filed a lawsuit with the court in Strasbourg complaining that the Cyprus Supreme Court decision was not impartial and violated high rights to a fair trial. After his case was thrown out, he said he later discovered that the son of one of the Supreme Court judges who had ruled on his case was married to the daughter of one of the law firm’s associates that had represented the company and that both worked at the law firm.You May LikeDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoKelley Blue Book10 Electric Cars That Last the LongestKelley Blue BookUndo Turkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoConcern over falling tourism numbersUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img
