March 28, 2010 - Naharnet - Amnesty International Points to Libya's Complicity in Sadr's Disappearance

Amnesty International has written a letter to the Arab Summit about Libya's complicity in the 1978 disappearance of Imam Moussa Sadr and his two companions, according to a statement released by the Supreme Islamic Shiite Council.
The statement said Amnesty International urged Arab leaders to "address human rights violations and continuing phenomenon of impunity in the Arab world."
The document included a paragraph on Libya's "complicity" in the disappearance of Sadr.

"Amnesty International points out that the legacy of impunity prevails over the forthcoming Arab Summit and the conference will be held in the absence of a high-level Lebanese delegation because of the Libyan government's alleged complicity in the forced disappearance of a prominent Shiite cleric in 1978," said the letter by the non-governmental worldwide organization.
