Disappearances Commission Receives 18590 Complaints From Three Districts

In three sittings covering Jaffna, Killinochci and Batticaloa districts, the state appointed Commission into Disappearances has received 18,590 complaints pertaining to disappearances. 

The commission was set up by the government just before the UNHRC session a few months ago and the government said it would be formed as part of implementing LLRC recommendations. 

However, Tamil political parties and Tamil Diaspora have already expressed doubts over the conduct of the Commission into Disappearances, calling it a 'toothless' body. 

However, no time-frame has been given to the commission to conclude its work. Its main duty, according to media, is to identify cases of disappearance that warrant further inquiries and forward them to the Attorney General Department.
