Release Date: 17 January 2022
(Nicosia, 17 January 2022) – The Committee on Missing Persons in Cyprus (CMP) wishes to express its deep appreciation to the European Union (EU) for its financial contribution of €2.6 million. The EU is by far CMP’s largest donor having contributed €33,3 million to the Committee since the beginning of its operations in 2006.
In 2022, these funds will support the CMP Project on the Exhumation, Identification and Return of Remains of Missing Persons in Cyprus with its goal to identify and return the remains of missing individuals and to bring to an end the uncertainty which has affected the families for so many years.
So far, 1,023 missing persons from both Cypriot communities have been identified and returned to their families for dignified burials.
CMP relies on donor support to implement its bi-communal project that alleviates the suffering of the concerned families.
