Dear friends,

The Asian Human Rights Commission (AHRC) has received updated information that due to a bullet wound and removal of one kidney, Dr. Afia Siddiqui health is in a serious condition, but no medical assistance has been provided to her whilst she has been in American custody in New York.


El 30 de agosto de 2008 se cumple el 25 aniversario del Día Internacional del Desaparecido. Este dia conmemoramos los desaparecidos y le pedimos a apoyar nuestra lucha por la ratificación universal de la Convención Internacional por la protección de todas las personas contra desapariciones forzadas.

Nosotros, familiares de desaparecidos y organizaciones de derechos humanos de todo el mundo se unieron para establecer la Coalición Internacional contra Desapariciones Forzadas (ICAED) en 2007. Unido hacemos una campana por la convención.

La Convencion proporciona muchos elementos para prevenir, investigar y sancionar el crimen de desaparición forzada. Sin embargo, para realizar el nivel de protección que ofrece la Convención necesitamos muchas ratificaciones más. Actualmente tenemos cuatro ratificaciones (Albania, Argentina, Honduras y México).

Por lo tanto pedimos a personalidades y ONGs para apoyar nuestra campana con la firma de la ‘carta de llamada’, que esta adjuntado a este mensaje. Con la carta llamamos a gobiernos a que firmen, ratifiquen e implementen la Convención (carta tambien disponible a www.icaed.org en ingles, francés, español, árabe y ruso). La carta será enviado a todos los Jefes de Estado del mundo.

Personalidades (judicial, político, cultural, etc.), para firmar envíenos su NOMBRE, PAIS Y OCUPACION

ONGs, para firmar envíenos la NOMBRE DE LA ORGANIZACIÓN, PAIS, PUESTO DEL FIRMANTE

Le rogamos que envíen sus firmas a d.hardy@aimforhumanrights.nl antes de augusto 28.

August 30 2008 marks the 25th anniversary of the International Day of the Disappeared. On this special day we commemorate the disappeared and ask you to support our struggle for the universal ratification of the International Convention for the Protection of All Persons from Enforced Disappearances.

We, family members of the disappeared and concerned human rights organizations from all over the world, joined hands to establish the International Coalition against Enforced Disappearances (ICAED) in 2007. Together we campaign for this Convention.

The Convention contains many elements to prevent, investigate and sanction the crime of enforced disappearance. However, many more States need to ratify it than the current four (Albania, Argentina, Mexico and Honduras) for the Convention to realize the full protection it can offer.

We therefore ask personalities and NGOs to endorse our campaign by signing the attached appeal letter, that urges governments to sign, ratify and implement the Convention (appeal letter is also available on www.icaed.org in English, French, Spanish, Arab and Russian). The letter will be sent on August 30 to all Heads of State around the globe.

Personalities (judicial, political, cultural, etc), please sign by e-mailing us your NAME, COUNTRY and OCCUPATION

NGOs, please sign by e-mailing the NAME OF YOUR ORGANIZATION, COUNTRY and FUNCTION OF THE SIGNATORY.

Kindly send the signatures to d.hardy@aimforhumanrights.org before August 28.
