How can we solve it? (keep it civilized)

about the missing, worth mentioning...

Postby repulsewarrior » Sat Nov 29, 2014 12:56 am

Some remains of missing persons have been removed and hidden to cover up mass executions, the Pancyprian Organisation of Relatives of Undeclared Prisoners and Missing Persons has said.

The organisation said that over the past two years less and less valid information is reaching the Committee on Missing Persons (CMP) and the authorities of the Republic, while Turkey continues refusing to cooperate, open its archives and allow access for investigation in areas branded `military zones` in the north.

It said from a number of exhumations over the past few years, another dimension of the problem had come to light, that of the deliberate removal of remains from their initial burial sites with the aim of concealing mass executions carried out by invading Turkish troops on civilians and prisoners of war.
“The tragic case we see today concerns 70 civilians aged over 50, of whom 52 were from the village of Assia and 18 from neighbouring communities,” the organisation said.

It added that from the recent identification of incomplete remains found in the Ornithi area, information was confirmed regarding the removal of remains and their transfer to an unknown place.
“The result of this second, heinous crime against the victims and their relatives, is the discovery and handing over to the families of just a small part of the remains, which in most cases is just a few bones or bone fragments. Also, the refusal of the Turkish side to give information and explanations regarding the places they were taken to cannot be overlooked,” it added.

The organisation said it was unacceptable and demanded an immediate reaction from the government and the CMP so that the bones that were removed were found.

It also calls on the government and the CMP to make a firm commitment that the case files concerning the removal of remains would not be closed and that investigations would continue and intensify.

According to the CMP, to date, 1,508 Greek Cypriots and 493 Turkish Cypriots are on the missing list.

The number of identified remains of individuals returned to their families are: Greek Cypriots: 509 and Turkish Cypriots: 127, while 927 sites have been excavated. (CNA)

‘Missing persons remains moved to cover mass executions’


...somehow i feel vindicated, crime occurred, and if i had millions, i would spend some of it to find my own missing relatives of course, but i would spend money on who did this too.

The best in NATO is how they like to describe themselves. If it really is such an organised and structured force then the only possible conclusion is that these executions were commands from high up.

Leave it to the likes of VP and Lordo and Co to rationalise the killings of the 50 year olds of Ashia.

Papadopoulos was from Ashia.

...or low-downs, locals, wanna-be's, the one rotten apple(s) who take(make) the opportunity to(for) murder, for another's land and belongings, as simple as that. people who still live in the silence of their neighbours, because of fear; Patriots, they'd be called by their superiors, except for the bloody truth, still connected enough though to move the bones.

of course we can rationalise such activities but first lets see you rationalise, rounding up all the men and taking them away and killing everybody of all ages who were left behind including 16 day old selden. you can do it, come on lets hear it. lets hear it for the boys.

rw you seem to be unaware of how things were in cyprus. one side killed one, the other side killed one for reprisal. this is called eye for an eye and leaves everybody blind.

...go join kurupetos with his holocaust denial; we are not just talking about a mass grave, but an attempt to "move" it.

Very sad. We all know what we are dealing with when it comes to Turkey and its de-brained, killing machines that once could have become human.

An eye for an eye does not lead to such disparate numbers, 450 versus 1700 missing persons.

Yes, there was a massacre in Sandalaris, we know who did it, and for some reason the "best in NATO" did not attempt to arrest them when they had them in their grasp, They preferred to go to the next village over, Agios Sergios, and execute the priest and the village carpenter, see the Sunday Times Insight report, titled "Something Terrible Happened Here" dated September 1974.

Also, while the GC gang was killing 60 people in Sandalaris hundreds were being executed in Kythrea, Mia Milia, Afania, Ashia, places that had seen no intercommunal hostilities at that time, some had not known intercommunal fighting even in the 60s.

The 1700 missing, along with 4500 other dead, were not the work of some "eye for an eye" intercommunal score settling thugs, they were the work of a disciplined and structured army, therefore parts of the orders this army was carrying out. It was a deliberate campaign to terrorise and drive out 200 000 people from the north.

Some things are undeniable.

Inevitably at some future date Turkish official papers will be released to the public, hopefully unaltered, and we will see the full extent of the planning, execution and cover up that has happened in Cyprus.

Moving a mass grave so as to protect your reputation has the opposite effect. Denktash, in a typically chauvinist try to save the reputation of the Turkish army, conceded a few years ago that the missing are in fact dead, killed by TC irregulars. This admission makes the grave move twice as damning.

An eye witness account- in Kythrea, shortyly on August 15 1974 the Turkish army had captured some National Guardsmen and a few civilians from the town. They were marching them east when one old woman in her 70s started complaining of pains in her foot and demanded a medic. A soldier, in full view of his officers, took her a few yards into a field and shot her. There was no disciplinary action against the soldier, and I looked for it dilligently. The Red Cross met the column a little later and demanded a list of names, which was refused, but a UN patrol bumped into the argument and the list was provided. Who know what would have happened to that group of captives otherwise. No wonder they try to hide the bodies and the forensic evidence that they carry. These are the "best in NATO".

Latest tactic by the occupation army started with the mass grave in Ashia, is to only produce enough remains to identify the murdered and not anything that will provide evidence as to the manner in which they were executed. Remains of individuals of a non-combatant age have now been reduced to apparently stop further legal action being planned against the Turkish state.

just as soon as i hear your rationalisation of killing of a 16 day old baby, i shall reciprocate. otherwise there is nothing more to be said.
