Sri Lanka: Ensuring justice: Protecting human rights for Sri Lanka’s future
This briefing highlights a number of Amnesty International’s human rights concerns in Sri Lanka. These include the failure to provide truth, justice and reparation to victims of human rights violations and ongoing abuses perpetrated under the Prevention of Terrorism Act. A climate of impunity persists; weak domestic mechanisms fail to protect human rights or deliver justice. The organization remains concerned about the continuing violations of freedom of expression and association; failure to protect minorities from violence and discrimination; pervasive use of torture; continued reports of extrajudicial executions and the failure to address enforced disappearances.
