    We have to have hope, this is a meeting which can send a message to the international community that this issue is a humanitarian one and has to be settled, Theodosiou told CNA.

    He reiterated that the relatives demand an actual and true investigation into the fate of their beloved ones as ordered by the European Court of Human Rights in its judgment of May 10th, 2001.
