QUETTA: The BSO-Azad, in a letter to the UN, has requested its Working Group on Enforced and Involuntary Disappearances to directly speak to the people of Balochistan and families of the Baloch missing persons.
“This situation has left us with no hope at all whilst there are hundreds of Baloch youths and activists who are at risk of abduction by the authorities. Therefore, we request that the UN Working Group on Enforced Disappearances speak to the people of Balochistan and more importantly to the families of missing persons.”
It has also requested the UN to constitute a monitoring body on forced disappearances that also ensures regular reporting on the issue. It further requests that a follow-up mechanism, post the country mission, be put in place. – Dailytimes
