Kilinochchi-OMP-disappearance-mothersSouth Asians for Human Rights (SAHR), a regional network of Human Rights Defenders, is issuing this statement to affirm its solidarity with the families of the victims of enforced disappearance protesting in different areas in the North and East of Sri Lanka. In particular, the network extends its support on the occasion of the 100th day of the campaign in Kilinochchi. These family members of disappeared persons, mostly women, have been demanding for their right to know about the fate of their loved ones and have continued their protests amidst intimidation by the security forces and surveillance by the government. They met the government ministers at least thrice since the protest started. However, SAHR is deeply disturbed that these peaceful protests, which began early this year and reaches 100 days today, has had no adequate response from the government.
