With tears in their eyes and their only desire to return, dozens of refugees attended the commemoration day of the occupied Acheritou that was so unjustly occupied by the Turkish invaders on August 31, 1974.

During the event, a memorial service was held for the fallen and executed Acherites and a prayer to find the missing, while at the same time a trisayo was held and wreaths were laid at the monument of the fallen and missing in the settlement of Agios Georgios Vrysoullon Acheritos.

In her speech, the Minister of Justice, Anna Prokopiou, said "On behalf of the State, we renew our commitment to prudently continue the fight with all our forces, for a fair, honest and sustainable solution to the Cyprus problem".
