Foreign Office Minister of the United Kingdom Hugo Swire today welcomed the publication of the report from the investigation on Sri Lanka by the Office of the High Commissioner of Human Rights (OHCHR).

Minister Swire said that UK would study the report’s recommendations closely, and work with Sri Lanka and other partners at the UN Human Rights Council in response to it.

“We will study the report’s recommendations closely, and we look forward to working with Sri Lanka and other partners at the UN Human Rights Council in response to it. We hope that we can agree a consensual resolution that will help to address the issues of the past and deliver lasting peace and prosperity for all Sri Lankans,” Mr. Swire said.

“I welcome the publication of this important report into allegations of serious violations and abuses of human rights in Sri Lanka. I am grateful to the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, his staff and all who contributed, for the work that went into producing it. The UK has been a strong advocate for the UN’s investigation and was instrumental in securing the resolution that mandated it. We believe it is vital that the legacy of the conflict in Sri Lanka is properly addressed, to allow the country to fulfil its huge potential,” he said

The United Kingdom co-sponsored the resolution in March 2014 that called for the OHCHR’s investigation.
