HRCSL says otherwise about the use of Security Forces….

The use of tear gas, water cannons, and wooden rods by law enforcement officials to disperse protesters during the previous three days has drawn criticism from Sri Lanka’s Human Rights Commission.


The HRCSL emphasized in a statement that everyone has the right to freedom of assembly and speech, and that both people and groups have used this right throughout the nation.


The statement went on to say that the Commission has started inquiries and investigation procedures to determine whether crowd control measures taken by law enforcement officials are in compliance with Sri Lanka’s constitutional requirements, its obligations under international human rights law, and the fundamental human dignity principles.
