Purnimaya Lama’s husband, Arjun, was abducted by members of the Maoist party on 19 April 2005 in the village of Chhatrebanjh in Nepal. Despite years of campaigning, Purnimaya does not know the truth behind what happened to her husband and no one has yet been brought to justice.
Today, on the International Day of the Disappeared (30 August), we ask you to take part with us in Amnesty International’s campaign to determine the truth, deliver justice and make reparations to the families of the disappeared in Nepal – where more than 1,300 people are recorded as being ‘disappeared’ from the ten-year period of conflict (1996-2006).
Watch the stunning video below featuring Purnimaya Lama and click over to the Amnesty International campaign page where you can write the Inspector General of Police in Nepal asking him to take action. For more information, check out our friends at the Rights Exposure Project.
