Each year, on Aug. 30, families and organizations gather to remember the estimated 17,000 Lebanese who disappeared in the chaos of the 1975-1990 Civil War. Thursday, on the eve of the International Day of the Disappeared, the Justice Ministry confirmed that it had referred a list of 10 names to a national commission which, upon its confirmation by the government, will be tasked with clarifying the fates of the individuals and bringing answers to their families. During an event at Beit Beirut organized by the International Committee of the Red Cross, Judge Jean Kazzi, representing the Justice Ministry, said the list had been sent to the government, which was now responsible for getting the work underway.Attending the event were Christophe Martin, ICRC head of delegation, Dr. Rabih Chammay, head of the mental health program at the Health Ministry, Anis Moqaddem, representing the Families' Committee, and Nizar Saghieh from the law-monitoring organization The Legal Agenda.
