    Missing persons issue under the spotlight

    by Maria Myles

    Nicosia, Aug 4 (CNA) -- UN Secretary General Kofi Annan intends to send a letter to Cyprus President Tassos Papadopoulos and Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Denktash in a bid to press on with the resolution of the humanitarian issue of missing persons, in particular the concurrent investigation of cases by the Committee of Missing Persons (CMP) and exhumations in the island's northern Turkish occupied areas, well informed sources have said.

    The letter is expected to be in line with the letter and the spirit of his earlier letter of December 2003 with regard to the issue of missing persons. Papadopoulos replied within days to the December letter saying he accepted the Secretary General's terms. Denktash has yet to respond formally to the UN call for exhumations and investigation with convincing evidence about the fate of missing persons.

    Turkey's ''declaration of intention'' presented to the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe in early June with regard to the issue of missing persons is considered by various circles as an indication but no proof of its real intentions to respond to Annan's call.

    Meanwhile the government of Cyprus, assisted by the Committee of Relatives of Missing Persons, is working methodically in line with a strategy drafted in coordination with the Committee with a view at making headway in solving the humanitarian issue of missing persons and ascertaining their fate, as sources close to this effort have told CNA.
