Cyprus has pledged to increase its funding for the Committee on Missing Persons (CMP) from €175,000 to €300,000 annually starting in 2024, reflecting its strong commitment to resolving the cases of 2,002 missing individuals in Cyprus. This funding boost, announced by the Government Spokesman, highlights the government’s determination to support the CMP’s efforts in excavations, exhumations, and identification, and it demonstrates international and local support for resolving the heartrending issue of missing persons.
