The relatives of those gone missing under enforced disappearances in Mullaitivu said that Mahinda’s re-entry is an opportune time to bring forth good news in the context of their loved ones. The protest launched by the relatives of those gone missing under enforced disappearances reached the 603rd day yesterday.   


Speaking in that context, the Secretary of the Association of those gone missing under enforced disappearances in the Mullaitivu District P. Ranjana said following the war ended in 2009, many people were abducted and various protests were launched to trace them. She said that over 1,400 people in the Mullaithivu District alone had gone missing under enforced disappearances. “We placed our confidence on the regime of good governance for the last three years but we have been deceived,” she said. She charged that despite their approach made to the government to evolve a solution to the issue through the international community, the government that disregarded the appeal was dragging the issue without a solution.


 “They don’t seem to look into the problems faced by the people,” she said.   Meanwhile, Annaletchumy, a mother of a person who went missing under enforced disappearances said the time was ripe for former President Mahinda Rajapaksa’s re-entry to bring forth good news about their children. “Hence, at least now the new government should evolve a suitable solution to our issue,” she urged.
