Germany donates €100,000 to CMP

Germany has donated €100,000 to the Committee on Missing Persons (CMP), which is trying to locate and identify Cypriots missing since intercommunal strife in the 1960s and the 1974 Turkish invasion.

With the latest donation, Germany has granted a total of €300,000 to the CMP over the past 10 years.

The Cypriot government has also donated €125,000 to the committee, bringing its total to €2.5 million since 2005.

The donations will contribute to the CMP’s goal of identifying and returning as many remains of missing individuals as possible to bring an end to the uncertainty affecting so many families for so many years.

So far, 574 missing persons from both communities have been identified and returned to the families for burial.
