Much to be done in Sri Lanka - UK

While claiming that Sri Lanka has made encouraging progress towards fulfilling its commitments to UNHRC Resolution 30/1, Britain said that it ‘recognises there remains much to be done’.

“We look forward to the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights’ assessment of progress at the next Human Rights Council in June,” Minister of State, Foreign and Commonwealth Office Hugo Swire told UK Parliament.

    You message's intention is 100% right. However, the government of Sri Lanka in the past and present did everything other way around intentionally. The government of Sri Lank carries out the agenda to suppress Tamils in Sri Lanka in a long term. To do so, it tries to do everything.

    Mr.Hugo Swire, how are going to account for the most heinous atrocities committed by the ruthless Tiger Terrorists ? Why do not do anything against those who backed up the Tiger Terrorists to the hilt and who are now championing the cause of "Democracy" and "Human Rights"

    HUGO u r correct much to be done by UK to compensate srilanka for all, British regime Plundered from PROSPEROUS Srilanka, during British regime. U guys sucked every thing from our land and this is the time to give them back. i don't think u can complete compensating in many years when u calculate the amount of wealth and lives u guys destroyed during the bloody regime. before pointing the fingers to other countries pl. stand in front of a mirror and question yourself what u guys have done to the world. nothing other than sucking the wealth from smaller countries.

    The rights of those who were displaced by the LTTE from the north and east are never mentioned when "rights" are referred to by the U.K., U.S. etc. as well as the GOSL. When will the media bring this to their attention? There can be no "reconciliation" unless all those affected the the LTTE terrorism are addressed "EQUALLY".

    sam Thursday, 14 April 2016 08:56 PM

    Much to be done in uk, not in srilanka. pl. hand off srilanaka. pl. let srilankans to solve their problems. these people are trying to mess up srilanaka.
