  • [01] GREEK FM - MISSING PERSONS

    The establishment by the Republic of Cyprus of the October 29th as the Missing Persons Day, reminds that for 36 years the painful humanitarian issue of the fate of a huge number of missing persons from the Cyprus tragedy remains unsolved, Greece Foreign Minister Demetris Droutsas has said.

    Due to the efforts of the Committee on Missing Persons (CMP) and the Republic of Cyprus, the fate of a number of missing persons has been determined, Droutsas said, stressing that Turkey must allow the conducting of a substantial investigation, which will lead to the determination of the fate of all missing persons.

    Finally, the Greek Foreign Minister expressed Greeces fully support to the families of the missing persons.

    Cyprus has been divided since 1974, when Turkey invaded and occupied its northern third.

    [02] CYPRUS MILK FINE

    The Cyprus cow milk producers are called to pay a superlevy fine of 125 000 euro for exceeding the quota of milk production for the season 2009-2010.

    According to the provisional figures published by the European Commission on Friday, Cyprus, Denmark, and the Netherlands, were the only Member States, which exceeded their milk quotas in the 2009/2010 quota year, triggering superlevy fines for a total of 19 million euro.

    Altogether these three countries accounted for an overrun of 70 000 tones of their national quotas. The Netherlands and Denmark exceeded their ``deliveries`` quota by 0.4%, and Cyprus by 0.3%, triggering fines of 13.03 million, 5.68 million and 125 000 euro respectively.

    Cow`s milk is marketed in the European Union on the basis of quotas. Each Member State has two quotas, one for deliveries to dairies, the other one for direct sales to consumers. These quantities are broken down among producers (individual quotas) in each Member State.
