The Committee on Missing Persons (CMP) on Tuesday expressed its thanks to the Republic of Cyprus for its donation of €125,000.
The donation brings the Republic’s financial assistance to €2,410,700 since 2005, the CMP said. The CMP relies on donor support to continue its work.
“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,” the CMP said.
So far, 614 missing persons from both communities have been identified and returned to their families for a dignified burial.
