Sophocleous and others v Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs and another

Conflict of laws – Tort. The judge had erred in holding that only English law applied to determine limitation in relation to alleged torts committed against the claimants during the Cyprus Emergency between 1956 and 1958. Accordingly, the Court of Appeal, Civil Division, allowed the defendant Secretaries of State's appeal, and held that both the law of Cyprus and the law of England and Wales applied for the purposes of determining limitation.
