NCHR prepares list of 101 forced disappearance victims



The National Council for Human Rights (NCHR) is preparing a list with the names of forced disappearance victims that so far include 101 victims reportedly arrested by security forces.
 
The victims have been detained since their arrest without their place of detention being revealed, according to a NCHR source.
 
The head of the NCHR's complaints office, Nasser Amin, said the council gathered the 101 names based on complaints filed by their families since May 2015.
 
The NCHR has sent the Interior Ministry 51 inquiries about the disappeared detainees, he said, and received 24 replies identifying the location of 24 victims from the Interior Ministry.
