Families of those who went missing or were kidnapped during the Lebanese Civil War demanded Wednesday that the government implement a new law setting up a national commission to investigate the fate of the missing and prosecute those responsible. The law was passed by Parliament earlier this month, but needs government action to go into full effect.According to Halwani, by implementing this law, the government would be restoring its credibility and fulfilling its duties toward the Lebanese people.Halwani also explained that the committee is not responsible for the law's controversial Article 37, which calls for prosecuting those responsible for the disappearances and those who may have concealed any information regarding the missing.
