Sri Lanka: When will they get justice? Failures of Sri Lanka's Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission

, Index number: ASA 37/008/2011

Thousands of civilians were killed and other serious human rights violations committed during Sri Lanka’s decades-long internal conflict, particularly during the final months. The Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission (LLRC) is the latest in a log line of failed domestic mechanisms putatively aimed at securing justice in Sri Lanka. In this report Amnesty International examines the many failures of the LLRC’s proceedings. The organization is calling for an international, independent investigation that can deliver truth, justice and reparations to the thousands of victims of violations committed during Sri Lanka's bloody war.
