Description : To mark the International Day of the Disappeared, the ICRC is publishing a list of more than
1200 people unaccounted for in Nepal. Amongst the names on the listare the 17 men from
Jogimara who disappeared in November 2001. Since 1999, the ICRC and Nepal Red Cross have been contacting the families of those who disappeared during Nepal’s internal conflict and asking the parties to the conflict to clarify what happened to them. Under international law, the government has an obligation to inform all the families of the disappeared and to give them the status of lamilies of the missing’. This official status gives them access to government aid programmes as well as to legal advice.
