UN working group to work towards certainty on disappearances for families in North Sri Lanka

One of the UN Working Group on Disappearances' roles will be to give certainty to the families of the disappeared, “particularly in Northern Sri Lanka,” said the Vice Chair of the UN Working Group on Enforced or Involuntary Disappearances.

Responding to a question on Sri Lanka from the Inner City Press Bernard Duhaime said he will be meeting civil society in Sri Lanka as well as the government.

The UN Working Group is expected to visit Sri Lanka from November 9-18. Its initial visit in August was cancelled after Sri Lanka’s government said it would face programming difficulties to host the group.
