Over 200 protestors gathered outside the Trincomalee Town Divisional Secretariat, in what was a third continuous day of protests rejecting the Presidential Commission on Missing Persons.
Speaking to the Tamil Guardian, a priest that attended the protest said,
“The people have no trust in any domestic inquiry into our missing loved ones. The Presidential Commission has been taking place for over a year with no results for the Tamil people. We are calling for the international community and the United Nations to get involved.
The protest was organised by the Tamil Civil Society Forum, ahead of the sitting of Sri Lanka's domestic commission probing disappearances. The organisation, along with the Welfare Organisation for the Forcibly Disappeared Persons, announced that they would be boycotting the commission in a statement on Thursday.
Protests against the Presidential Commission on Missing Persons, outside the Kuchchaveli Divisional Secretariat in Trincomalee, continued for a second consecutive day with passers by joining protests on Sunday.
