HRC 19/2 - Reconciliation and accountability in Sri Lanka

Promoting reconciliation and accountability in Sri Lanka

adopted 22 March 2012

This resolution focused on accountability for war crimes committed during the last months of the internal armed conflict in Sri Lanka. The resolution noted with concern that the report of the Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission on Sri Lanka did not adequately address serious allegations of violations of international law. The resolution called on the Government of Sri Lanka to initiate credible and independent actions to ensure justice, equity, accountability and reconciliation for all Sri Lankans and the OHCHR to assist them in the efforts.
