Interim Relief is a temporary measure of providing assistance to families of missing and disappeared persons until reparations are provided. Based on recommendations made by the OMP in its Interim Report of August 2018, the government allocated Rs. 500 million in its 2019 Budget as Interim Relief to pay Rs. 6000 per month to families of missing or disappeared persons. Family members who possess either a Certificate of Absence (CoA) or a Certificate of Death (CoD) which states that the person has been missing or has been disappeared for over one year are entitled to Interim Relief. The then Ministry of National Integration and Reconciliation informed the OMP that interim relief payments had been made to 153 families to the value of approximately Rs.7 million, up to 11th November 2019. The OMP has continued to advocate with the government to continue payments of Interim Relief.
