The missing in Lebanon: We’re halfway there

03 July 2019

In November 2018, the Lebanese Parliament passed Law 105, the Law on the Missing and Forcibly Disappeared, a step forward in providing answers to the families of the missing.

Law 105 foresees the creation of an independent and non-discriminatory National Commission with a humanitarian mandate to clarify the fate and whereabouts of people who went missing in Lebanon. It is an unprecedented opportunity for the country not only to bring answers to families, but also to start helping its society coming to terms with a tormented past.

This video explains in details what the ICRC and other local actors have done for the missing file so far and what’s next now that the law has passed.
