UK wants LLRC report implemented

Britain has urged the Sri Lankan government to implement the recommendations of the Lessons Learned and Reconciliation Commission (LLRC) as soon as possible.

UK Foreign Office Minister Jeremy Browne said that the vote on the resolution on Sri Lanka at the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) underlines the importance that governments across the world attach to supporting lasting peace and reconciliation in Sri Lanka.

“I also welcome the outcome of the vote on the Sri Lanka resolution. This underlines the importance that governments across the world attach to supporting lasting peace and reconciliation in Sri Lanka. We urge the Sri Lankan Government to take the necessary steps to implement the recommendations of their Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission as soon as possible,” he said in a statement today.

He further said that Britain will continue to work with its international partners on several issues, to support the work of the UN Human Rights Council and ensure that those who are responsible for human rights violations and abuses are held to account by the international community.

    It is strange that the Sri Lankan government is reluctant and uncooperative to implement their own recommendations.
    It is also strange that they keep making other nations who insist they do so, the villains.

    it is the first time the world requires the government to implements its own recommendations. Tamils have seen many commissions since the independent without any implementation. behavior of the past is behavior of the present, and future.
