Oct 07 critical as resolution against SL to meet a vote at UNHRC

October 07, 2022 would be very critical to Sri Lanka as the resolution tabled against the island nation at the 51st Session of the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) in Geneva, Switzerland backed by seven member states including world powers the United States and the United Kingdom is being called in for a vote, analysts warned.

Sri Lanka for the longest time has been at the centre of a conversation among the international community involving human rights abuses pertaining to arbitrary arrests, the enforcement of the controversial Prevention of Terrorism Act (PTA), extra-judicial killings, and the deprivation of rights as a result of the three-decade-old war at the UNHRC, but this time the resolution tabled against the country also includes the economic crisis, for which the paper demands action against the parties responsible.

A number of member states have already expressed their opinions regarding Sri Lanka and severe criticisms are being levelled against the existing regime.

The group of delegates representing the island nation at the UNHRC is already working towards the obtainment of support from member states for the October 07 vote, and the Sri Lankan team is confident that the resolution could be defeated, had the member states from the Asian and African regions supported.
