Commission on enforced disappearances received 318 complaints in four months

The inquiry commission on enforced disappearances received 318 complaints in the last four months, a local media outlet reported on Saturday.

Since March, 2011, the commission received 5,369 complaints out of which 3,600 cases were resolved. However, 2,000 missing persons could not be found.

Defence of Human Rights Chairperson Amna Masood Janjua expressed her dissatisfaction over the performance, explaining that the commission contacts intelligence agencies after an inquiry over a complaint is completed. The cases are disposed once the agencies inform the commission that the individual in question is in their custody.

“The disposed of cases are actually dead or interned in tribal territory, with very few releases,” she said.
