Amnesty International Calls On Governments To: Investigate All Cases Of Enforced Disappearances

136Views

 

-Investigate all cases of enforced disappearances and abductions and, if there is sufficient admissible evidence, prosecute those suspected of criminal responsibility in fair trials before ordinary civilian courts without recourse to death penalty.

 

-Make enforced disappearance, either committed by state agents or armed non-state actors, criminal under national law and punishable by appropriate penalties which take into account its extreme seriousness.

 

 

-Ratify and implement the International Convention and accept the jurisdiction of the Committee on Enforced Disappearances (CED) to receive and consider communications from or on behalf of victims and other states parties.

 

-Make sure survivors and people who have lost their loved ones receive reparation – this includes compensation, rehabilitation, restitution, and a guarantee that it won’t happen again.

 

-Abrogate any amnesty law or any other measure of impunity, like statute of limitations
