    [01] Missing Persons - Committee President

    by Maria Myles Nicosia, Jun 13 (CNA) -- The Committee of Relatives of Missing Persons is pushing for a simultaneous exhumation of remains from mass graves, in the Turkish-occupied northern areas of Cyprus and the government-controlled southern part of the Republic, according to its President Nicos Theodosiou.

    In an interview with CNA, he said he has discussed this matter with US administration officials and suggested that a mass grave in occupied Cyprus, where missing US citizens are believed to be buried along with Greek Cypriot missing, should be opened and at the same time graves of Turkish Cypriots in the government-controlled areas should also be opened.
