CMP announces recovery in a well at Sinda/İnönü

(Nicosia 21 November 2018) – A bi-communal excavation team of the Committee on Missing Persons in Cyprus (CMP) has recovered the remains of one individual in a well at Sinda/İnönü on Tuesday 20th November.

This well poses serious safety risks as no authorization was received by the landowner to open up an access ramp. CMP archeologists had to find specialists who could descend into this unstable and deep well with the proper equipment and expertise.

The CMP would like to extend its warmest sympathy to the families of the missing persons and make a plea, once again, to the people of the island to support the Committee’s efforts by calling and providing information on possible burial sites through the lines: +357 22 400142 (G/C Member's Office) and 181 (T/C Member's Office).
