This year marks the tenth anniversary of the programme of excavation and exhumation across the island to recover the remains of Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots who have been missing since the inter-communal fighting of 1963 to 1964 and the Turkish invasion of Cyprus in 1974...
In the past ten years 558 Greek Cypriots and 184 Turkish Cypriots who were missing were identified and their remains returned to their families. However, for the remaining 950 Greek Cypriots and 309 Turkish Cypriots missing, the wounds remain open — they are still unaccounted for, and time is running out.
