Human Rights Watch said the Sri Lankan government should fulfill its commitments to the United Nations Human Rights Council by ensuring that foreign judges and prosecutors play a significant role in the mandated accountability mechanism for wartime abuses.

On January 21st, President Maithripala Sirisena told the BBC, that he will "never agree to international involvement".

After adoption of the resolution, Sri Lanka told the council that it was pleased to join as a co-sponsor “as a further manifestation of Sri Lanka’s commitment to implement the provisions of the resolution, in a manner that its objectives are shared by the people and all stakeholders in the country, for their benefit".

Human Rights Watch, Asia director, Brad Adams said The Sri Lankan government sought international involvement to ensure justice and accountability so there’s no excuse for backtracking.
