The book deals with the genesis, formation and development of two fundamental aspects of English Law, common law and equity. The common law laid down the rules governing cohabitation in communities and human rights. Equity was the offspring of natural law designed to prevent and remedy injustice resulting from unconscionable conduct. English law including both common law and equity was introduced in former British Colonies and dominions. In most of them it was retained after independence. This is the principal legacy of English colonization of countries. The introduction, application and retention of English law is reflected in Cyprus, a former British colony.

Attorney General, Republic of Cyprus It is with great pleasure that I foreword the book of Dr Despina Kyprianou's for many reasons: The ?rst one is that books on any area of Cyprus Law is particularly welcomed as there are limited studies which focus on this ?eld and reveal the singularities and special features of Cyprus Law. The second one is that this book is about the Attorney General's Of?ce, an of?ce that I have served for almost thir- ?ve years and have personal knowledge of its crucial role not only regarding prosecutions but also regarding a wide variety of other legal issues. The third and most important reason is that this is an excellent work and a thought-provoking contribution to our understanding of the Role of the Cyprus Attorney General's Of?ce in Prosecutions. The last reason that I am very happy to commend this study is the fact that, a few years ago, I was the one that granted access to the Law Of?ce for Dr Kyprianou's research. The publication of this highly informative book is the best con?rmation that I was right in doing so. The Republic of Cyprus was established as an independent sovereign republic with a presidential regime on 16 August 1960, when its Constitution came into force and British sovereignty over Cyprus as a Crown Colony ceased.

Following 82 years of British rule, Cyprus emerged in 1960 as an independent state endowed with a written Constitution, detailed to the extent of making provision for nearly every aspect of government. Two distinct features of the Constitution are: the incorporation of a comprehensive charter of human rights backed up by a duty cast on every authority of the State to ensure its efficient application; and the strict separation between the three powers of the State. Another notable aspect of it is the introduction of judicial review of administrative action rendering justiciable every act, decision or omission of every organ, body or person exercising administrative or executive authority. The diversity of the sources of constitutional order, its detailed provisions about nearly every aspect of government convey a distinct complexion to the Constitution of the country. This book covers its application in the turbulent history of the island, which provides a singular if not a unique example of the sustenance of constitutional order in extreme circumstances; constitutionalism in full swing.

This study includes a translation of all testimony heard during the Templar trial in Cyprus in 1310 or 1311. The trial is of great importance to the study of the history of the order because of the large number of Templar witnesses, 76, many of high rank, and the ancillary testimony of 56 noblemen, burghers and members of the regular and secular clergy. What makes the trial particularly significant is that torture appears not to have been used, allowing witnesses to give their opinion of the order free of the usual constraint. A large amount of testimony omitted from the Latin edition appears in this volume. Witnesses are cross-referenced to other Templar trials, of to Cypriot notarial documents. The work is completed by photographs, maps, an index, lists of witnesses and a bibliography.
