The Cyprus Limitation of Actions Law, Cap 15, sets out the time limits within which claims must be brought before a court.
The Law was suspended following inter-communal disturbances in 1964 and has remained suspended ever since. Law 159(I)/2011, which was enacted on the 09.12.2011, now provides that the suspension of limitation will cease on the 30.06.2012.
Law 110(I)/2002 was passed, which provided that the Limitations Law would re-enter into force with effect from 1 June 2005. However, Law 110(I) itself was suspended, initially until 31 March 2010, later until 30 November 2010 and then until the 31 March 2011. Subsequently Law 41(I)/2011, further extended period until the 31 December 2011.
