Human Rights

Sri Lanka


Human Rights violations continue at full force in Sri Lanka. Thousands of people are arbitrarily arrested, often tortured or ill treated. There are continued reports of extra-judicial executions and forced "disappearances," and the fate of thousands of disappeared people remains unknown. Abuses are committed both by government forces and by the armed opposition group Liberation Tigers of Tamil Elaam (LTTE). The reports here bring some light into the situation of Sri Lanka, we caution you, however, to read the materials with a critical eye and be on the look for potential bias.
