Laos: On fourth anniversary of enforced disappearance, civil society demands to know: “Where is Sombath Somphone?”
On the fourth anniversary of the enforced disappearance of prominent Lao civil society leader Sombath Somphone, Amnesty International and 131 other organizations condemn the Lao PDR government’s ongoing failure to adequately investigate Sombath’s disappearance. We urge the authorities to act to conduct an effective investigation with a view to determining his fate or whereabouts. In particular, we condemn the Lao PDR government’s inaction after the discovery of new video evidence made public 12 months ago.
