The International Campaign for Tibet (ICT) asked the UN Human Rights Council to look into 41 cases of enforced disappearances in Tibet that ICT documented between April 2010 to February 2014.
Presenting a joint statement with Helsinki Foundation at the interactive dialogue with the Working Group on Enforced or Involuntary Disappearances (WGIED), Elena Gaita said, “during the period of April 2010 to February 2014 the International Campaign for Tibet in its report 'Acts of Significant Evil: The Criminalization of Self-Immolation' recorded at least 41 cases of individuals feared disappeared because of these new measures. We endorse the Working Group’s call to State’s to take specific measures to prevent threats, intimidation and reprisals against victims of enforced disappearances including family members, witnesses and human rights defenders.”
