What about the British Missing Persons?
|Even as recently as this month [June 2014] the authorities in the Republic of Cyprus have demanded that the north of the island allow access to all possible sites where Greek Cypriot ‘Missing Persons’ may be buried, including sites within military zones of the ‘occupying’ army. I notice with some unease that they only refer to Greek Cypriot ‘missing’.
Earlier this year the bi-communal Committee on Missing Persons (CMP) reported that the numbers of missing people were 1,508 Greek Cypriots and 493 Turkish Cypriots with 388 Greek Cypriots and 125 Turkish Cypriots having so far been identified and returned to their families.
If it is true that 'Cleanliness is next to Godliness' then a lot more people in Northern Cyprus are more holy since the big clean up day of the 5th June. Hosts of people met up right across the north to ensure that the beautiful island retains its beauty, and a lot of blood, sweat, toil and almost tear's went into the day.
The major force behind this was 'Temisleylim/Let's clean it' and a grand job of sending text messages to encourage people to sign up was done.
