Tamil families of the disappeared continued their protests in Mannar last week, with a rally calling on the United Nations to ensure justice was delivered and the fate of their loved ones is determined.
The rally, which took place last week, marched from the Mannar District Secretariat and ended near the Sathosa ground, where a mass grave was uncovered in 2018.
The protestors have joined other relatives of the disappeared, who have been protesting for years on the roadsides of the Tamil homeland, demanding information on their missing loved ones.
To date, no one has been held accountable for the disappearances.

Sri Lanka is one of the most dangerous places in the world to be a journalist. Tamil journalists are particularly at threat, with at least 41 media workers known to have been killed by the Sri Lankan state or its paramilitaries during and after the armed conflict.
Despite the risks, our team on the ground remain committed to providing detailed and accurate reporting of developments in the Tamil homeland, across the island and around the world, as well as providing expert analysis and insight from the Tamil point of view
