Sri Lanka based on a fascist ideology of making Sri Lanka into a Sinhala Buddhist I இனநாயகம் I TGTE
Hon. President Sri Lanka’s current economic crisis is its own making over the past several years of economic mismanagement and abuse of human rights and humanitarian rights especially towards Tamil Speaking Citizens of Sri Lanka based on a fascist ideology of making Sri Lanka into a Sinhala Buddhist Island. This ideology which paved the way to civil war which is continuing in way of military occupation of Tamils Traditional Homeland in NorthEast of Sri Lanka. From the start of the UPR process Sri Lanka used UPR as tinkering and a box ticking exercise than that of bring a real change by adhering to enhancement of human rights and humanitarian rights to its citizen’s. Here are few recommendations from the past 4th periodic cycle, which Sri Lanka has not implemented up to now!
1. Ratify the Rome Statue of the International Criminal Court and fully align its legislation with all the obligations under the Rome Statute, including incorporating the Rome Statute definition of crimes and general principles, as well as adopting provisions enabling cooperation with the Court.
2. Repeal the Prevention of Terrorism Act and enforce an immediate moratorium on its use.
3. Implement recommendations by relevant treaty bodies such as the Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, to end military involvement in commercial and other civilian activities.IMF help for the current economic crises should be based on the Sri Lanka’s full commitment to fully comply with international UPR commitments and other UNHRC resolutions. If IMF do not act now, it will be funding human rights and humanitarian abuses in Sri Lanka.
