The Families of the Disappeared organisation in Sri Lanka is calling on the Parliament to release all the names collected by Presidential Commissions of Inquiry (CoIs) into the alleged perpetration of enforced disappearances in the late 1980s, including the list that names President Gotabaya Rajapaksa for his role in the Matale District where more than 700 persons disappeared while he was in charge.

“The report on President Rajapaksa’s alleged role in the mass atrocities in 1989 is a must read for everybody fighting to obtain justice for their loved ones who were forcibly disappeared, extra-judicially killed and buried without even a tombstone or burnt on pyres of tires, as well as for parents who want to stop their sons and daughters meeting with such a fate again,” claimed the President of the organisation, Brito Fernando in a statement made in this regard.
