Sri Lanka: No real will to account: Shortcomings in Sri Lanka’s National Plan of Action to implement the recommendations of the LLRC
Sri Lanka’s failure to account for serious violations of human rights has created a climate of impunity where arbitrary detentions, torture and other ill-treatment, enforced disappearances, and custodial killings continue unchecked. More than three years after the armed conflict with the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) ended, these violations continue to be reported. In this written statement to the 21st session of the UN Human Rights Council, Amnesty International urges UN member states to insist on evidence of concrete changes – not just plans and promises.
