A number of human rights activist have joined together at an event at the Canadian High Commissioner’s Landon residence last night to give their voices to Sri Lankan rape victims.
The event was organised by the The International Truth and Justice Project. This is a project led by the human rights activist and former UN expert panel member on Sri Lanka Yasmin Sooka. They are the authors of the report “Stop Torture“ which documents the case that sexual violence continues to be used systematically in Sri Lanka as a tool of oppression. It documented the cases of 40 Tamil men and women who had been raped by Sri Lankan security forces between 2010 and 2014.
