Sri Lanka: Joint oral statement at HRC 43
The joint INGO oral statement urged the Council to hold Sri Lanka accountable to its obligations under international law. Given the Sri Lankan government’s announcement that it will not continue to engage with the clear framework agreed through resolution 30/1; the failure of past domestic reconciliation and accountability mechanisms; and the ongoing compromise of the rule of law as pointed out by the High Commissioner yesterday, we call on the Council to establish an international accountability mechanism on Sri Lanka.
