CNA - CYPRUS/Nicosia 12/06/2018 20:40

Presidential Commissioner Photis Photiou said that the intentional relocation of remains belonging to missing persons was a “major crime” on the part of Turkey and that the government of Cyprus would not cease to pursue the issue.
Addressing on Tuesday the House Committee on Refugees, Photiou expressed his apprehension over the general course of the process used to locate and identify remains of missing persons and referred to the decreasing number of successful discoveries.
He suggested that the government and the parliament convene a joint meeting, together with Greece, to look into ways of strengthening political and diplomatic efforts on this issue.
