CNA - CYPRUS/Larnaca 20/07/2019 14:46


The issue of the missing persons which remains unresolved constitutes one of the most important open chapters of the 1974 tragedy, President of the House of Representatives Demetris Syllouris told a ceremony for the missing persons held at the Panorama of Missing Persons in Kornos.
 
“The concern of the Cypriot state is to safeguard and protect every family’s inalienable right to be informed and to know the fate of their loved ones based on facts and proof,” he said, noting however the passage of time is not conducive to our efforts.
 
 He also noted that the limited number of witnesses, or their refusal to cooperate and construction activity in possible burial sites constitute additional obstacles to the whole effort.
