CRC FILE ON DECLARED PRISONERS OF WAR NOT RELEASED

  1. The seven persons mentioned in this report are still miss ing according to a recent checking. (Ed. Note: names fol­ low)
  2. On 24 September 1974 the ICRC received a list of pris oners of war made by the Turkish Cypriot Police Authori­ties (Lefkosa Turk Emniyet Mudurlugu). This list contains, 2.115 names of POWs. After the necessary cross­ checking, the seven persons mentioned are still regis­ tered by the ICRC as missing. (There is no POW regis­ tered or released under the said names according to the ICRC index cards; moreover, the relatives have con­ firmed that the above-mentioned are still missing).
  3. According to the list, six of the seven are registered as POWs in Turkey, the seventh as POW in Cyprus.
  4. A few differences can be seen when comparing the Turk­ish list with the ICRC files. The following may offer an ex planation for these discrepancies:
    • The persons who made the list did not have a good knowledge of the Greek language and made some errors in the transcription of the names.
    • Many Greek Cypriots are known under different names.
    • The Greek Cypriots themselves are sometimes not certain of a person's age, profession, etc.

NOTE: There follows on the next pages the cases of the seven declared prisoners who have not been released, as given by the ICRC.
