Release Date: 9 November 2023
(Nicosia, 9 November 2023) – The Committee on Missing Persons in Cyprus (CMP) is extremely grateful to Ireland’s National Police and Security Service (An Garda Síochána) for its provision of a training on investigative interviewing by a team of six Irish police officers to CMP’s investigators from 25 October to 1 November 2023. The newly acquired interviewing skills will help the CMP with its operations. The Committee Members hope that this cooperation with Ireland’s National Police and Security Service will continue.
The CMP was established in 1981 by an agreement between the Greek Cypriot and the Turkish Cypriot leaders, under the auspices of the United Nations. The CMP Project on the Exhumation, Identification and Return of Remains of Missing Persons in Cyprus became operational in 2006 and is co-funded by the European Union.
