Sri Lanka: Flickering hope: Truth, justice, reparations and guarantees of non-recurrence in Sri Lanka
In 2015, Sri Lanka co-sponsored Resolution 30/1 at the UN Human Rights Council to demonstrate the newly elected government’s commitment to break with impunity for a past marked by serious human rights violations. While the Resolution was welcomed both domestically and internationally, three years on, progress has been slow and political will, dimming. A detailed report on Sri Lanka’s implementation of Resolution 30/1 will be submitted to the Human Rights Council, by the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, in March 2019. This report stands as Amnesty International’s evaluation of the progress on the commitments made by the Government of Sri Lanka in Resolution 30/1.
