Resolutions against Sri Lanka at the UNHRC

Many insurmountable problems related to the Civil-War in Sri Lanka still left unresolved long after the guns were silenced in 2009.

It is a well-known fact that at the 46th session of the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC), that is convened today, the Council needs to take strong action against the Sri Lankan government for failing to meet its obligations in spite of resolutions given extended periods.

Further the Assembly deserves criticizing for not paying attention to the atrocities committed by government forces, Indian peacekeepers, mercenaries and all those who fought against them outside the war zone in Sri Lanka during the civil war, and should be passed. Only then will the reality of the workings of the UNHRC Assembly emerge.

The bitter truth is that otherwise these issues will continue to be insurmountable problems to the country as a whole and for the affected families in all communities in the land.
