19th session (online), 7 to 25 September 2020
Following the infection of various members of the Iraqi Delegation and the quarantine required to the rest of the Delegation as a consequence, the Permanent Mission of Iraq requested the Committee on Enforced Disappearances to postpone the dialogue scheduled on 14 and 15 September 2020. The Committee thoroughly regrets this situation and wishes a prompt recovery to all affected members. The Committee is currently exploring different options to have the referred dialogue as soon as possible. The relevant information will be shared as soon as it becomes available. The public meeting scheduled on 14 September will be maintained, during which the Committee will make a public announcement about the situation faced, but the dialogue will not take place that day. The public meeting of 15 September will be replaced with a private meeting, during which the Committee will address other items of its agenda.
In line with prevailing circumstances, the 19th session of the Committee will be held online. The public meetings of the session will be webcast at http://webtv.un.org/. The provisional programme of work of the session has been adapted to take into consideration the present extraordinary circumstances and can be consulted at the following link.
