FIND’s press forum and 27th founding anniversary, 23 Nov 2012, Kenny Rogers Roasters, Matalino QC
The Families of Victims of Involuntary Disappearance (FIND) welcomes the historic ratification of the proposed Anti-Enforced or Involuntary Disappearance Act of 2012 by the Senate and the House of Representatives on October 16, 2012.
For almost two decades, the families of desaparecidos and other human rights advocates have steadfastly pushed for a law that would make enforced or involuntary disappearance a distinct crime to help bring its perpetrators to justice. The proposed measure once signed into law will be a landmark instrument that the suffering victims and their families can use in their collective effort to put an end to impunity.
In this regard, is holding a Press Forum on the salient provisions of the engrossed bill that now awaits the signature of the President. The Press Forum will be held on the 27th founding anniversary of FIND on November 23, 2012 at the Kenny Rogers Roasters Restaurant, Matalino Street, Quezon City from 9:30 am – 11:30 am.
