The continuous struggle undertaken by the relatives of missing persons reached its one year mark yesterday.
In view of this an attention drawing demonstration was held yesterday. The relatives of missing persons who are engaged in continuous struggles in Mulaitheevu,vavuniya, Kilinochchi and Trincomalee also participated in this Protest.
Although the struggle of relatives with the demands” What happened to our relatives handed over to the Security Forces?” and “What happened to our relatives who were made to Disappear?, has continued for one year now no solution has been provided by the Sri Lankan Government.
In view of their struggle reaching the year mark, they held a protest yesterday. There is no point in believing the Sri Lankan Government for a solution. International Community should intervene and handle our problem. At least, the UN should give a solution to us in the current sessions. Else our problem will go on for years, they said.
They also said that the Office for the missing has been established to save the Government from International Society. Meanwhile, some people are engaged in supporting this move and attempting to show to the International Community that there is support for this move from Tamil faction. We will not allow this act.
