CMP announces recovery of human remains in Egkomi / Tuzla

(Nicosia 28 May 2019) – Thanks to precise information recently collected, a bi-communal excavation team of the Committee on Missing Persons in Cyprus (CMP) has recovered the human remains of one person at a site in Egkomi / Tuzla on 28 May 2019.

As a follow-up to the 10 May announcement of the discovery of human remains in Mutluyaka / Stylloi, the CMP has decided to temporarily suspend the excavation at this site for further investigations.

In 2019, the CMP has recovered the remains of 19 individuals.

The CMP would like to extend its warmest sympathy to the families of the missing persons and make a plea, once again, to all communities on the island to support the Committee’s efforts by providing information on possible burial sites by calling these CMP phone numbers: +357 22 400142 (Greek Cypriot Member's Office) and 181 (Turkish Cypriot Member's Office).
