  • [01] Intensified efforts needed to solve missing persons issue, British MPs say

    British MPs Jim Sheridan and Alan Meale have pointed out the need to intensify efforts for the investigation of the fate of missing persons from both communities on the island, describing the issue of missing persons as a purely humanitarian one.

    Sheridan and Meale were speaking during a press conference held Thursday in Nicosia to present Sheridan's report on the issue of missing persons in Europe following a number of armed conflicts over recent decades. The report was adopted unanimously last week by the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe.

    The report notes, inter alia, that solving the problem of missing persons is vital for establishing reconciliation between warring factions and ensuring peace on the European continent. It also says that the two of the main reasons why the problem of missing persons has not yet been solved are lack of political will and individual's fear of reprisals.
