A remembrance event has been held for journalist Ahmed Rilwan on International Day of the Disappeared in Sri Lanka.

Later in the evening in Galle Face, the family of the disappeared, including Rilwan’s sister, talked in detail about their cases.

While it has been four years since Rilwan’s alleged abduction, his sister said that former Vice President Ahmed Adeeb has revealed that President Abdulla Yameen stopped a cabinet-level investigation on his disappearance.
