In a recent Washington Post article, Northwestern University Law School professor, an expert on international law, wondered aloud why the International Criminal Court (ICC), which is investigating Turkey’s alleged deportation or transfer of its civilian population into Occupied Cyprus, in violation of the ICC’s Rome Statue, is not getting much response, beyond “a yawn.”

Turkey seems utterly unperturbed, Kontorovich writes, and even Cyprus, which has complained about these Turkish settlers for years, never formally referred these alleged crimes to the ICC.

Moreover, Britain, which maintains its status as “guarantor of Cyprus’ sovereignty,” even though it did virtually nothing during the 1974 invasion, has not shown any genuine concern. And even human rights groups, such as Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch, have not reacted.

Why all the apathy Kontorovich wonders?
