TNA Decision Concerning Impending UNHRC Resolution

 

The following decision was arrived at following a meeting of TNA Members of Parliament and Provincial Council Members held in Vavuniya yesterday (11):

All Sri Lanka’s obligations in terms of the UN Human Rights Council Resolution 30/1 of October 1, 2015 co-sponsored by the Sri Lanka Government must be fully implemented. These obligations must be fulfilled under strict conditions, under the monitoring of an office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, which must be established in Sri Lanka.

The UN Human Rights Council must ensure that, in the event that the Sri Lanka fails to fulfill the above-mentioned obligations by way of an appropriate mechanism, victims will receive the intended benefits of the fulfilment of such obligations, by way of international Mechanisms.

MP Nadesu Sivasakthi stated the EPRFL did not agree with above-mentioned decisions.
