International Day of the Victims of Enforced Disappearances and other topics


Dear friends,

On 30 August, we commemorated the International Day of the Victims of Enforced Disappearances. These victims are not only the forcibly disappeared but also their children, partners and close ones, who bear the burden of uncertainty on a daily basis. TRIAL International remembers the tens of thousands whom enforced disappearances have left behind.

In this newsletter, you will also read about the Commission of Inquiry on Burundi, Congolese NGOs fighting on the side of victims and a massacre in The Gambia that remains unelucidated.


As usual, we thank you for your support and wish you a pleasant read,

The TRIAL International team
