Turkish Cypriot leader donates €75,000 to the CMP

Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akıncı has donated €75,000 to the Committee on Missing Persons (CMP) on behalf of the Turkish Cypriot community.

According to a CMP announcement, this brings the Turkish Cypriot financial assistance to the CMP to a total of €433,000 over the past thirteen years.

The CMP thanked Akıncı for his generous donation to the Project on the Exhumation, Identification and Return of Remains of Missing Persons in Cyprus, saying that it 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, 927 missing persons from both communities have been identified and returned to their families for a dignified burial. The CMP relies on donor support to alleviate the suffering of the concerned families, the announcement concludes.
