European Parliament passes resolution asking Sri Lankan government to fully implement LLRC recommendations

The European Union(EU) parliament has passed a resolution calling on the Sri Lankan government to implement the recommendation of the Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission(LLRC) in full.

In the resolution the EU MPs appreciate the restoration of peace and welcome the first ever elections in the Northern Province. However, they note with concern that “the presence of government military forces in the former conflict areas remains considerable” and that there are continuing reports of intimidation and human rights violations.

The government must intensify its efforts to fully implement the recommendations concerning credible investigations, demilitarisation, and the establishment of land dispute resolution mechanisms, amongst others, the resolution adds.
