Switzerland donates EUR 38,000 to the CMP

NICOSIA, 11 December 2015 - The Committee on Missing Persons (CMP) wishes to express its sincere thanks to the Swiss Confederation for its donation of EUR 38,000 made today. This second allocation brings the Swiss financial assistance to the CMP to a total of EUR 71,000 over the past two years.

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.

So far, 618 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.
