Cabinet has approved establishing an office on missing persons, the Government information department said today.

The Government said there have been strong requests for providing true information on disappeared or missing persons to their relatives to know their actual fate.

“It will enable such families to reunite, closure with regard to such disappearance, or granted with reparations and other relief and support,” the Government said.

Therefore, a proposal made by Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe, in his capacity as the Minister of National Policies and Economic Affairs, to establish an independent institution as office on missing persons by a Parliament act, was approved by the cabinet.
