A recent court decision allowing the "right to know" has given hope for answers to the families of those who went missing or were kidnapped during the Civil War.Imad was 18 years old in 1982 when he disappeared on his way home from a funeral.Saghieh was referring to a ruling on March 4 that annuls a previous decision by the Cabinet's Secretariat denying the families full access to official documents relevant to their loved ones, including those pertaining to mass graves and confessions by former militia members in the cases of Lebanese that went missing during the Civil War.The recent ruling is part of a long and tedious history of legal processes carried out by families of the missing.In 1995, the government passed a law enabling families to declare anyone missing for more than four years dead, which allowed inheritance and property rights to be settled.
