The first identification of the missing persons from the Taskent region in 1974 has begun.
Within this framework the identities of 3 missing persons have been completed and the remains of 44 missing persons have been shipped to Bosnia for DNA analysis.
On the 15th of August 1974, 83 Turkish Cypriots were taken away from the buses they were on in the Taskent region.
After 38 years finally identification of the missing has begun.
In 2011 a mass grave of Turkish Cypriots were identified in the Limasol region and the remains belonging to Kübilay Ibrahim, Hasan Fevzi and Aydin Ahmet have been identified.
The Turkish Cypriot member of the Missing Persons Committee Gulden Plümer Küçük has said that excavation work was carried out at two sites where the missing people from the Taskent village were located. At the first excavation site 44 remains were found.
Eye witness statements have led to a second site being excavated and while a total of 46 remains have been sent to a lab in Bosnia for identification 3 remains have been identified.
