More than 5,500 cases are pending at the Sri Lanka Human Rights Commission (SLHRC) in Colombo and in the regional offices island wide due to the non-appointment of the Commissioners since April 2009.

Secretary of the Human Rights Commission Chandra Ellawala told the Daily Mirror that they have received nearly 7500 complaints from January 2010.

Ms. Chandra Ellawala also said that they are currently doing only the preliminary investigations on complaints received by them.

“We can’t make any recommendations without the Commissioners. We are not empowered to issue recommendations. If the case is only fit we complete the inquiries,” she added.

    7500 complaints are from those who had the means to file, how about the thousands who bear silently. How can we say that we have a clean and just society, who os to be blamed?

    that is the purpose of not appointing a commissioner Ms. Ellawala. By the way we havent had any HR-violations even during the war in 2009 so why do we need a commisioner now?

    Why not export some of these cases and earn some foreign exchange?

    There is nothing called human rights in the miracle that is Sri Lanka for anyone to violate in the first place, so why bother?

    This has been the practice since 2007 - The year MR blatantly ignored all the procedures and appointed HIS men as Commissioners. R.I.P HRCSL!

    When there are NO HUMAN RIGHTS in SRI LANKA today, I wonder how there can be any violations?

    The HRC has had no mandate since 2007.
