Sri Lanka Tamil parties want UN action against the government for HR violations

ECONOMYNEXT – Sri Lanka’s Tamil political parties, Civil Society organisations and Victims’ Organisations have written to the 47 member states of the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) demanding action against what they call is a deteriorating Human Rights situation in this country.

The letter signed by all the political parties representing voters in the Tamil majority areas in the North and East points out that all the major political parties in the country “have categorically and without exception stated that they will protect the Sri Lankan armed force from prosecutions” for what took place at the end of the separatist war.

The 46th session of the UNHRC will be held next month where Sri Lanka’s situation will be evaluated in light of previous resolutions.
