Sri Lanka must stop making empty promises to the international community and the Sri Lankan people on improving the country’s still desperate human rights situation, Amnesty International has said.
Amnesty International submitted their briefing, ‘Ensuring Justice: Protecting Human Rights for Sri Lanka’s Future’ to the United Nations (UN) Human Rights Committee ahead of its examination in October 2014 of Sri Lanka’s fifth periodic report on its implementation of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR or the Covenant).
Amnesty International staff, including Researchers and Campaigners, joined by Sri Lankan human rights defenders, attended the UN Human Rights Committee (HRC) in Geneva, Switzerland on 7 and 8 October 2014 which reviewed Sri Lanka’s respect for rights enshrined in the key human rights treaty: the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR).
