Deafening silence: 85 days since Rifawi’s forced disappearance

218 TV had previously made several statements demanding the disclosure of Rifawi’s fate, as it appealed to the government and all relevant authorities to intervene to end his suffering, and all humanitarian organizations, human rights bodies, embassies and international organizations called for the same thing, but his kidnappers and detainees rejected all those appeals, in blatant defiance, in In the absence of oversight and the spread of impunity and punishment.
