Members of the organisation representing the relatives of missing persons in the North-East agreed to fully boycott the Presidential Commission’s inquiries, demanding instead that any further investigations should be carried out by independent, international actors.

The decision was reached ahead of the Commission’s impending visit to the North to carry out inquiries.
