Release Date: Feb 16, 2007
(Nicosia, 16 February, 2007) – The Belgian Government has decided to contribute €250,000 to the Committee on Missing Persons in Cyprus (CMP). This will enable the CMP to extend its project on the exhumation, identification and return of remains o missing persons, which was launched in August 2006.
The Government of Belgium supports the work of the CMP because it enhances the dialogue between the communities and brings the concrete evidence that both communities have a strong interest in cooperating in order to go beyond the tragic events of the past and build together their common future.
The CMP would like to express its gratitude to the Belgian Government for its generosity, which will enable its bi-communal teams of scientists to continue their work throughout the island on behalf of the families of missing from both communities.
