Information On Disappeared Should Be Provided To Independent Commission For Location Of Victim’s Remains.

The Minister for Justice Mrs Helen McEntee, TD has called on those with information on the ‘Disappeared’ to provide it to the Independent Commission for the Location of Victims’ Remains.

Past ICLVR search.

The ICLVR is responsible for facilitating the location of the remains of victims of paramilitary violence (known as ‘the Disappeared’) who were murdered and secretly buried. The role of the ICLVR is purely humanitarian. Its only aim is to recover the remains of the disappeared in order to allow the families to give their loved ones a proper burial.

Minister McEntee said: “My thoughts are with the family of Columba McVeigh at this difficult time. We all hope that this latest search at Bragan Bog in County Monaghan will be successful.

I recently met with the Commission and their dedication to their task is clear. The families of the Disappeared have had to endure a particular cruelty, facing not only the tragedy and injustice of losing a loved one to murder, but not knowing for decades where that loved one was buried.

At this time we think also of the other families who still await the return of their loved ones’ remains. The Commission’s investigations are complicated and difficult, and information from the public is crucial to its work.

Someone out there may know something that might help. I would call on anyone with information that could help recover the remains of those still missing, to pass that information to the Commission without delay, safe in the knowledge that it will be treated in the strictest confidence”.
