Vavuniya disappearance campaign reaches 100,000 signatures

Families of the disappeared in Vavuniya, who launched a signature campaign calling for international intervention in Sri Lanka to ensure justice for Tamils, reached 100,000 signatures this week. 

The families took their protest in Trincomalee on Monday.

Last month families of the disappeared in Mullaitivu also launched a petition campaign, calling for an international accountability mechanism to ensure justice for their loved ones.

The petition, launched ahead of the UN Human Rights Council session later this month, calls for an international mechanism which Sri Lankan leaders have repeatedly rejected despite co-sponsoring a resolution that mandates foreign judges participating in a accountability mechanism in 2015.
