General Comment on Article 17 of the Declaration on the Protection of All Persons from Enforced Disappearance
Punishment | Admissibility | Statute of Limitations
The continuing and serious nature of enforced disappearance calls for a restrictive application of statutory limitation legislation. Such approaches must prevent perpetrators from abusing statute of limitations. The restrictive conditions of the application of statutes of limitation are complemented by the fact that enforced disappearance gravely infringes a series of other rights as per Article 1 of the Declaration.
