The families of the disappeared in Vavuniya marked International Father’s Day with a tribute to the Tamil father who died earlier this month.
The father from Vavuniya, Sinnachami Nallathambi, had been searching for his son that had been abducted outside a court. He passed away at the age of 71, when he fell from a tree in his home in Koomankulam, Vavuniya.
Yesterday also marked 1220 days of continued protests in which the families of the disappeared insisted that “Tamils need to focus on finding a way to head towards a safe and secure motherhood.”
Earlier this month, a 69-year-old father from Mullaitivu, Kanagasabai Nithya, died looking for his daughter, who was forcibly disappeared in Mullivaikkal, 11 years ago.
