Awaiting News: Disappearances And Its Impact On Families

Filed under: Colombo Telegraph,Video |

On the 30th of August, the world and Sri Lanka marked the International Day of the Victims of Enforced Disappearances, with events taking place in several parts calling for justice for the victims and their families.
Disappearances is not a new phenomena in Sri Lanka and it’s prevalence is linked to the culture of impunity which have allowed disappearances-a crime against humanity to go unchecked and very little in the form of investigations being carried out.
On this report however we move away from the circumstances that led to the disappearances and look at the impact it has on loved ones.
