The European Union today called on the Sri Lankan government to extend further invitations to facilitate outstanding visit requests by UN special mandate holders, including the Working Group on Enforced or Involuntary Disappearances.
 
“We welcome the visits by the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights and the UN Special Envoy on Human Rights of Internally Displaced Persons and encourage the Sri Lankan government to extend further invitations to facilitate outstanding visit requests by other UN special mandate holders, including the Working Group on Enforced or Involuntary Disappearances,” the EU Heads of Mission in Sri Lanka said in a statement in view of the World Human Rights Day (December10).
 
The statement also said that, “in Sri Lanka, there have been significant improvements since the end of the conflict, particularly on resettlement and physical reconstruction. Funding from EU and its Member States has supported progress on de-mining and the construction of new houses, helping the displaced to return to their homes.  We welcome the Northern Provincial Council elections and encourage the Government to take further action to implement the recommendations in the Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission Report in order to ensure justice and meaningful reconciliation. Further challenges also remain in upholding the independence and effectiveness of the judiciary and the rule of law, strengthening freedom of expression, taking effective action to end religious intolerance and preventing sexual abuse of women and children.”
 
The Delegation also takes this opportunity to encourage Sri Lankan authorities to engage in dialogue with, and draw on the support of, international partners who may be able to assist in the remaining challenging tasks. The EU continues to stand ready to offer assistance to the Sri Lankan government to help it address and overcome these challenges in order to help build a better and brighter future for all Sri Lankans, the statement added.

    I am sure all these visits will lead to an international investigation on crimes against humanity during the last stages of the war.

    Lets invite Darusman this time and ask him give another report!

    Sug Madique Wednesday, 11 December 2013 08:19 AM

    Who will investigate the other periods of the war or are those lives not important?

    Nodrog Wednesday, 11 December 2013 11:09 AM

    Why visit now? Earlier reports were written without even visiting SL, conclusions were made as to the govt's guilt of war crimes by listening only to one side. Even Cameron came with preconceived notions and hidden agendas. So why should SL allow more foreigners to come here to criticize and condemn? Why don't people come with the view an open mind and to help?
