Chief Justice of Cyprus

The Chief Justice of Cyprus was the head of the Supreme Court of Cyprus.

The administration of Cyprus was taken over by the British government, following the Russo-Turkish War, under the Convention of 4 June 1878. Charles Alfred Cookson was appointed in that year as Chief Justice and Attorney General. Following the oubreak of hostilities between the two countries in 1914 the island was annexed to the British crown. The country became independent on 16 August 1960. [1]

The Supreme Court of Cyprus was established in 1883.
