Slovak FM donates €10,000 to the Committee on Missing Persons

Slovakia’s Foreign Minister,  Miroslav Lajčák, has donated €10,000 to the Committee on Missing Persons (CMP).

A statement by the CMP said that the donation was made on Tuesday on the occasion of the visit to the CMP Laboratory. This brings the Slovak financial assistance to the CMP to a total of €20,000 over the past years.

This contribution to the CMP Project on the Exhumation, Identification and Return of Remains of Missing Persons in Cyprus will support the Committee’s goal of identifying and returning as many remains of missing individuals as possible to bring an end to the uncertainty which has affected so many families for so many years, it added.

So far, 937 missing persons from both communities have been identified and returned to their families for dignified burials. The CMP is working hard to resolve the remaining cases, it said, adding that it relies on donor support to alleviate the suffering of the concerned families.
