[From the web] “First anti-enforced disappearance law in the whole Asian region, was enacted into law exactly a year ago today.” -AFAD
“REPUBLIC ACT 10353, AN ACT DEFINING AND PENALIZING ENFORCED OR INVOLUNTARY DISAPPEARANCE, the first anti-enforced disappearance law in the whole Asian region, was enacted into law exactly a year ago today. It is a product of years of struggle of families of the disappeared in the Philippines for truth, justice, reparation, memory and guarantees of non-recurrence. As the human rights community commemorates the first anniversary of this law, the Asian Federation Against Involuntary Disappearances in cooperation with the Families of Victims of Involuntary Disappearance (FIND) continues to work hard to ensure its full implementation.”
