August 11, 1996.

Under the gaze of the blueheads, within the Green Line, in Deryneia, Turks and Gray Wolves, brazenly lynch and murder Tasos Isaac in public view.

Three days later, on the day of Tasos' funeral, a group of demonstrators again heads to the Deryneia roadblock to lay wreaths at the site of his murder.

His cousin, Solomos Solomou escapes from the blue-collar men.
He climbs the mast to take down the flag of the pseudo-state.
In a split second, he is shot dead.

None of the perpetrators are arrested. No one is punished for the two heinous crimes.

On June 24, 2008, the European court condemned Turkey, but 26 years later, their murderers not only remain unpunished but also hold positions of power in the pseudo-state.

26 years later, no one forgets. State and church honor their memory.

In the Holy Church of Agios Dimitrios in Paralimni, on Sunday, the annual memorial service of the two new martyrs of Paralimni, headed by Metropolitan Basilios of Constantia - Famagusta, was held.

The Government was represented by Government Spokesman Marios Pelekanos.
In his memorial speech Major General Loukas Hatzimichael said, among other things, that "Tassos and Solomon, Greeks from their birth, never soiled the wine of the immortals, who from small children had the opportunity to taste and drink a little, creating the personality them in the neighborhoods and in the plains of Paralimni and Kokkinohoria.”

26 years after the swallow, 26-year-old Anastasia still flutters in the memory of the father she didn't get to know.
And yesterday he was there again.
And the blood froze in the veins when he laid a wreath.

This year's march was also connected with the centenary of the great disaster of 1922, which is why the march started from the "Memorial of Refugees of Asia Minor Hellenism", for the centenary of the disaster.

The motorcyclists once again repeated the request for the extradition and arrest of the wanted murderers Isaac and Solomon and that the only solution, as they stated, is their release.
