Amnesty: Right to Truth; the Right to Justice, Reparation and Non-Recurrence

Written statement to the 32nd regular session of the UN Human Rights Council (13 June-1 July 2016)1

by Amnesty International, London, May 30, 2016

Amnesty Right to Truth June 2016

ASA 37/4146/2016

The Government must not squander the good will of Sri Lankans who have waited decades for their human rights demands to be addressed. It must increase the pace, transparency and visibility of reform efforts ensuring these are undertaken with genuine cross community collaboration.

Amnesty International understands that it will take time for the Government to fully implement its commitments. Nevertheless, it is important that the Government make progress to build public confidence that it is serious in its reform efforts.
