Categories: DocumentsPress Releases
The Executive Director of the Centre for Policy Alternatives wrote to the chairman of the Human Rights Commission of Sri Lanka (HRCSL) seeking clarification regarding a news item that appeared in several websites which claimed that a report commissioned by the HRCSL in 2006 regarding several cases of serious Human Rights violations has not been published to this day.
In his response dated 29th January 2014 the Chairman of the HRCSL stated that the matter “was to be taken up at the commission meeting shortly to consider the course of action that should be taken in this regard.”

CPA is hopeful that the HRCSL follows through on this promise and take meaningful steps towards fulfilling its mandate to protect and promote human rights in Sri Lanka.
