CMP: new exhumation of a missing person from a well in Lapta/Lapithos

(Nicosia 27 June 2019) – A bi-communal excavation team of the Committee on Missing Persons in Cyprus (CMP) has recovered human remains belonging to one person at a site in Lapta/Lapithos yesterday.

This exhumation took place in a deep well using a new method for well digging under experimentation that promises to expedite CMP’s well excavations. 

In 2019 so far, the CMP has exhumed 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).
