UN expert group to review cases from Sri Lanka

The United Nations Working Group on Enforced or Involuntary Disappearances will examine more than 530 cases from 36 countries, including Sri Lanka, during their 119th session in Geneva.

The Working Group, comprised of five independent experts, will meet relatives of the disappeared, state authorities, civil society representatives and other stakeholders to exchange information on individual cases and on the persistent practice of enforced disappearances.

In addition, the expert group will discuss thematic issues, internal matters, future planned visits and will also examine allegations received regarding obstacles encountered in implementing the Declaration on the Protection of All Persons from Enforced Disappearance.
