(Nicosia, 20.02.2015) - The Committee on Missing Persons (CMP) wishes to express its sincere thanks to the Republic of Cyprus for its donation of EUR 125,000 made today. This allocation brings the Republic of Cyprus’ financial assistance to the CMP to a total of over EUR 2.5 million since 2005.
This donation to the CMP Project on the Exhumation, Identification and Return of Remains of Missing Persons in Cyprus will contribute to the Committee’s goal of identifying and returning as many remains of missing individuals as possible in order to bring an end to the uncertainty which has affected so many families for so many years.
So far, 574 missing persons from both communities have been identified and returned to the families for a dignified burial.
The CMP relies on donor support to alleviate the suffering of the concerned families.
