Over 50% of cases before CMP still missing, Presidential Commissioner says

Over 50% of cases which are before the Committee on Missing Persons (CMP) are still missing and despite coordinated efforts in Cyprus and abroad, Turkish inhumane intransigence has not changed, Presidential Commissioner Photis Photiou has said.
Photiou was addressing an event which commemorated missing persons in Cyprus on the occasion of the anniversaries of the 1974 coup instigated by the Greek military junta and the subsequent Turkish invasion of Cyprus which resulted in the occupation of the island’s northern third until today, at the military cemetery and a war memorial, known as Tymvos Makedonitissas.

As he pointed out, the fact that over 50% of cases before the CMP are still missing is indicative of the tragic state of affairs, adding that this is due to the negative stance of the Turkish occupying power for almost half a century.
