07-02-2007 , by United Nation

On Tuesday Sweden signed the UN Convention for the Protection of All Persons from Enforced Disappearance at a ceremony in Paris.

Sweden’s Ambassador to France, Krister Kumlin, signed the Convention on behalf of Sweden.

The decision to sign the Convention was taken by the Government on 1 February. Sweden is thus one of the first states to sign this new international legal instrument. Negotiations on the Convention for the Protection of All Persons from Enforced Disappearance have been going on in the UN during the last eight years.
