Amnesty International’s written statement to the 33rd session of the UN Human Rights Council (13 – 30 September 2016)
In 2015, Sri Lanka co-sponsored Human Rights Council Resolution 30/1 Promoting reconciliation, accountability and human rights in Sri Lanka. There have been positive developments since then, including increased openness to engage with Special Procedures. However, slow progress in delivering on many aspects of the ambitious agenda coupled with lack of transparency has led some victims and human rights defenders to express frustration.
