Turkish Cypriot member, Gülden Plümer Küçük, Greek Cypriot member, Nestoras Nestoros, and the UN member, Paul-Henri Arni, of the Committee on Missing Persons held a press meeting at the anthropology laboratory at the UN buffer zone regarding the allegations that the family of a missing Greek Cypriot received bones of someone else in addition to those of their relative.
