Denunciation contained in a Note Verbale from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Cyprus, handed to the Secretary General at the time of deposit of the instrument of ratification of the revised Charter, on 27 September 2000 - Or. Engl.

In accordance with Article 37 of the Charter, the Republic of Cyprus gives notice of its intention to denounce Article 2, paragraph 3, and Article 7, paragraph 7, of the European Social Charter.

The denunciation is made for purely technical reasons so that the ratification of the Revised Charter will be possible. The denunciation will in no way constitute a regression in the protection afforded to workers as the existing legislation safeguards the right of all employees to three weeks annual holiday with pay. The European Committee of Social Rights has in its conclusions confirmed the compliance of the situation in Cyprus with the aforesaid provisions of the Charter.
