Sri Lanka: Making the rights choices
When Sri Lanka co-sponsored UN Human Rights Council Resolution 30/1 in October 2015, the authorities finally acknowledged the need to end the long cycle of violence and impunity for violations of human rights. A year later, the government continues to commit to deliver justice, truth, reparation and guarantees of non-recurrence. However, valid concerns have also been expressed by Sri Lankan civil society groups and victims regarding the pace of progress. This briefing sets out Amnesty International’s recommendations for establishing effective mechanisms to ensure justice, truth and reparation (including guarantees of non-recurrence) for victims.
