Britain has raised concerns with Sri Lanka regarding the findings by UN Special Rapporteur Ben Emmerson after his fact finding mission to the country.

The Minister for Asia and the Pacific has this week registered the Britain's serious concerns with the Sri Lankan High Commissioner about the findings by the special rapporteur.

Meanwhile, a debate has also been sought in the House of Commons on the Sri Lankan situation.

Mr. Emmerson described progress on fulfilling resolution 30/1 as “slow” and the use of torture in Sri Lanka as “endemic”.
