  • [01] SPOKESMAN - SPEECH - FUNERAL - MISSING PERSONS

    The remains of Constantinos Ashikkalis, who had been missing since the 1974 Turkish invasion of Cyprus, were buried on Wednesday, having been found through the work of the Committee on Missing Persons and identified by DNA.

    Speaking at the funeral, Government Spokesman Stephanos Stephanou reaffirmed the determination to continue the struggle for a solution of the Cyprus problem, which would terminate the Turkish occupation and settling, and would reunite the country and its people in a bizonal bicommunal federation.

    Ashikkalis joined the National Guard in 1972 after his graduation and had been missing since the second phase of the invasion.

    Stephanou said the relatives of the missing persons have every right to learn the fate of their loved ones and assured that ``we will continue to demand the full investigation and determination of their fate, and we will continue to support the work of the Committee.``

    ``Finding and identifying does not solve the problem of the missing persons. However, handing over the remains to the families, burying our heroes with the appropriate honours, soothes the pain and liberates from agony,`` he said.
