Administrative & Public Law

Description

Administrative & Public Law

Administrative law concerns matters that require any form of interaction with, or approval from, a public authority. Under Cypriot Law the decision of any public body or authority that affects the rights of an individual or a company can be challenged in the Administrative Courts. The Courts can then either confirm or annul that decision. Any Application or Appeal before the Administrative Courts can be related to decisions taken regarding the payment or non-payment of state benefits, the promotion of civil servants in the public (and wider public) sector, to challenges relating to planning or building permits from the appropriate governmental authorities or the refusal to grant the permit or neglect to grant permit or decide accordingly.
