Presidential Commissioner calls on Turkey to show goodwill on missing persons issue

Presidential Commissioner Photis Photiou called on Turkey to show goodwill as regards the missing persons issue in Cyprus and assume its responsibilities.

Photiou was speaking at the funeral of the remains of a man, found in October 2014 during excavations carried out by the teams of the Committee on Missing Persons, according to a press release of the Press and Information Office.

Turkey, the occupying power, bears a heavy responsibility for the fact that the issue remains open and for actions and omissions that not only delay the investigative process, but essentially they hamper it, Photiou said.
