Successful certification of bi-communal CMP anthropologists

Four Cypriot anthropologists of the Committee on Missing Persons (CMP) from both communities have successfully passed the rigorous theoretical and practical examinations of the Latin American Directory of Forensic Anthropology (DALAF).

In a press release, congratulating the four anthropologists, the CMP notes that “on 25 October, Ms. Istenç Engin, Ms. Emine Çetinsel, Ms. Maria-Chrystalla Kyrkimtzi, and Mr. Uyum Vehit were certified and accredited in Colombia with the International Certificate of the Forensic Anthropologist.”

It adds that “the world’s oldest anthropology federation, DALAF serves as a non-profit civil association seeking to establish ethical and professional criteria for the practice of Forensic Anthropology and promoting the application of Anthropology and Forensic Archaeology.”

“With this achievement, CMP demonstrates its vision of maintaining high scientific standards and providing ongoing education and specialised training to its staff. This will allow that they have direct knowledge of scientific developments in forensic science,” the press release says.

It adds that “over the coming years, CMP will certify more scientists from its laboratory, thereby ensuring the staff members’ continued excellence in this field.”
