Article by Elena Riga and Kriton Dionysiou published in the Cyprus Mail and Politis newspapers.

Elena Riga, senior associate, and Kriton Dionysiou, associate, of our firm have recently published an article in the Cyprus Mail and Politis newspapers. In it, the authors presented the fundamental value of the European legal framework, namely the supremacy of  European law over national legal orders. They also mentioned that until now the courts in Cyprus have faced a dilemma in terms of applying European law in cases where opposing case law from the Cyprus Supreme Court exists.  Following on from this the article  expounded on a recent revolutionizing decision of the Cyprus Administrative court which affirmed the application of the above-mentioned principle in the Cyprus legal order.

The English version of the article may be accessed in this link whereas the Greek version is available here.
