Turkish Cypriot Donation of 50,000 Euro
(Nicosia, 14 July 2017) – The Committee on Missing Persons (CMP) wishes to express its sincere thanks to H.E. Mr Mustafa Akıncı for a donation of EUR 50,000 made on behalf of the Turkish Cypriot community today. This brings the Turkish Cypriot financial assistance to the CMP to a total of EUR 358,000 over the past eleven years.
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, 792 missing persons from both communities have been identified and returned to their families for a dignified burial.
The CMP relies on donor support to alleviate the suffering of families of missing persons.
