In light of recent developments in Libya, the International Commission on Missing Persons calls on Libyan authorities to design mechanisms to address the issue of missing persons in accordance with international norms. Accordingly, ICMP notes that the state has the obligation to document cases of enforced disappearance, recover and identify mortal remains, and return them to families for a dignified burial.
The International Commission Missing Persons held a seminar and workshop on enforced disappearances entitled, “The Right to Know” on 26 and 27 of September 2011. The ICMP held the event in Baghdad and in cooperation with the Iraqi Ministry of Human Rights.
