International Day of Solidarity with Detained and Missing Staff Members: March 25

March 25th is “International Day of Solidarity with Detained and Missing Staff Members.”

On this day in 1985, “Alec Colette”, who worked for the United Nations Relief Agency for Palestinian Refugees, was kidnapped.

And in 2009, he was found dead on the Beqaa Valley in Lebanon.

In the wake of this, March 25 was established as International Day to promote the discovery and release of detained or missing UN staffs around the world.
