An Appeal To All

April 28, 2008 marks the first year of the abduction of Jonas. The family has engaged in all the peaceful means available to it to recover Jonas from his captors.

While trying our best not to leave any stone unturned by pursuing all leads and seeking relief from all agencies through all avenues, nonetheless, Jonas remains to be missing. In the legal battle that the family is pursuing, we have unmasked the cover up characterized by lies and deceit, participated in by the heads of government police forces to protect the perpetrators of the crime against Jonas. The very forces tasked to protect the people are intent on hiding the truth about Jonas’ disappearance.

While we realize that we are faced with seemingly insurmountable odds, we firmly believe that our God is the God of Mercy and He will not turn a deaf ear to His people who seek justice. On April 28 we shall as a big family raise our voices in prayer at the celebration of the Holy Eucharist and pray for Jonas and the other disappeared.

I appeal to you to come march and pray with us. . . join our voices and help us find strength and courage to remain steadfast in our search for Jonas and the other victims of enforced disappearance.
