ICJ submission to the universal periodic review on Sri Lanka

The ICJ addressed in its submission the deteriorating human rights situation, occurring in the context of an armed conflict and emergency anti-terrorism measures that have weakened the rule of law.

The ICJ also raised an appalling prevalence of impunity for violations of human rights and international humanitarian law and the lack of capacity by state institutions and mechanisms to protect people from increasing human rights violations.
