UN Report Urges Spain Action on Franco-Era Crimes
MADRID, September 30, 2013
A team from the U.N. Working Group on Enforced or Involuntary Disappearances said in a preliminary report Monday that “it is regrettable the situation of impunity for cases of enforced disappearances.”
It noted Spain has “no ongoing effective criminal investigation” into the claims of thousands of disappearances and called on authorities to “engage more actively” in investigations. It said Spain has so far taken only “limited steps” to solve the cases.
The team spent a week in Spain interviewing hundreds of family members of those who disappeared. Its final report on the visit will be presented next year.
