A High-Level Task Force established by the NA later in 2006 chose to present
only the names of 12 individuals whom the NA claimed were not disappeared and
effectively dismissed the allegations contained in OHCHR's report. Following up
on the Army’s claims, my Office has carefully verified that 4 out of the 12 persons
named in the NA Task Force report were eventually released, but only after being
illegally detained for months and suffering ill-treatment which in some cases
amounted to severe torture. One person died in NA custody and the fate of the
other seven individuals named in the NA Task Force report remains unclear.
OHCHR, at this stage, concludes that those seven individuals continue to be
disappeared.
