“Extra Judicial Execution Victim Families Association Manipur (EEVFAM) along with different civil Society Organisations will launched an intense agitation to bring justice to fake encounters victims”, says Edina, secretary of the Association.
Speaking to Imphal Times today on the sidelines of one day public meeting on silence of the government of Manipur on Prosecution Sanction in connection with Extra Judicial Execution which was organised by EEVFAM at Manipur Press Club, General Secretary of EEVFAM Edina Yaikhom said that after filing 1528 cases of fake encounter to the Supreme Court, the Supreme court told to take up 6 cases to clarify whether they were fake encounters or not. Mukun Sinha the counsel of EEVFAM fight the case and declared that the 6 cases were not related to any criminal cases and are the case of fake encounter against innocent civilians.
After that 42 cases were investigated by CBI where 9 of the cases were charge sheeted, she added. She further said that out of the 9 cases eight cases were still going on without any prosecution sanction but one case from Thoubal can’t go further due to the lack of prosecution sanction.
Edina further asked to the authorities to either clarify that prosecution sanction is not necessary or if necessary let the authority issue the prosecution sanction.
The meeting was attended by General Secretary of EEVFAM Edina Yaikhom, President of Nupi Samaj Ema Ramani and Co-convenor of MANPAC Ningthouja Lancha as the dais member.
