Pressure in El Salvador for missing people

San Salvador, Aug 30 (Prensa Latina) The commemoration on Tuesday by virtue of a United Nations agreement of the International Day of the Victims of Enforced Disappearances has intensified the Salvadorans' demands for observance in the country.

We request that August 30 is declared “National Day of Missing Detained Person in El Salvador,” members of the Working Commission on Human Rights Pro Historic Memory said in a letter to the Legislative Assembly on Monday.

Miguel Montenegro, one of the members of the Commission, pointed out that they leave in the hands of the lawmakers a petition to decree the day so that they express interest in dignifying the families of the victims.

On the occasion of the date, the Commission will hold a ceremony on Tuesday to honor the victims of enforced disappearances during the domestic armed conflict (1980-1992).

The event will take place at the Memory and Truth Monument, in Cuscatlan Park, in San Salvador.

Regarding these demands, Vice President Felix Ulloa reiterated the Government’s commitment to the victims of the civil war.

Ulloa attended the commemoration of the International Day of the Victims of Enforced Disappearances, organized by Conabusqueda and attended by the relatives of some 10,000 people who disappeared during the 12 years of the war.

He expressed the commitment to promote a true law of integral reparation and access to justice.
