Hanaa Singer, Permanent Representative of the United Nations to Sri Lanka, has said that the families of the disappeared persons have a right to know what happened to their loved ones.
She was on a two-day visit to the North when she mentioned this on his Twitter page after meeting various parties.
12 years on the grief is still raw. Families of the #disappeared have a right to know what happened to their loved ones & to demand accountability. They have a need for closure, healing and redress. Their struggle for truth & justice must be accompanied by social support#Jaffna pic.twitter.com/j98KasHYN0
