Ireland has donated €25,000 to the Committee on Missing Persons in a bid to help it complete its task, it was announced on Wednesday.
Including this donation, Irish financial assistance to the CMP in the past 10 years has reached €275,000.
Thanking the Irish government, the CMP said its donation 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, 614 missing persons from both communities have been identified and returned to the families for a dignified burial.
The CMP relies on donor support to alleviate the suffering of the concerned families.
