In March 2014, under relentless pressure of the Committee of the Families of the Kidnapped and Disappeared and other NGOs, the Lebanese State Council issued a ruling that recognised the right to know the truth for the families of victims of enforced disappearance. It committed the Lebanese Government to provide a complete copy of the investigation report carried out by the Government-appointed Official Commission of Inquiry in 2000. Indeed, this report did not reveal the fate of a single person among the disappeared.
