United Nation’s Human Rights experts urged Sri Lanka, which is under scrutiny for its human rights record during the 30 year long insurgency, to implement judicial reforms to speed up prosecutions.

Sri Lanka agreed last year to establish a judicial process involving foreign judges to investigate alleged crimes during the conflict in line with U.N. recommendations.

The government has promised an impartial investigation into human rights violations by both sides in the final phase of the war, which ended with the military defeat of the Tamil Tigers separatist guerrillas in 2009.
