Canada has once again reiterated that Sri Lanka should respond to the allegations of human rights violations as promised.

They said that the process should have the participation of international judges.

Canada made this statement at the 37th UNHRC Session in Geneva.

Canada has reiterated that Sri Lanka should implement its accountability process with the inclusion of international judges as promised to the international community.

Canada has highlighted that a clear time frame and strategies in this regard should also be put forward.

Meanwhile, the Global Tamil Forum has called on the international community to ensure the continuation of the accountability and reconciliation processes in the country.

Several civic organizations in the North initiated a movement in Bazaar Street in Mannar to obtain 100,000 signatures emphasizing the need of an international court to investigate into the human rights allegations against Sri Lanka.

Meanwhile, issuing a communiqué, the Global Sri Lanka Forum has vehemently condemned the appointment of Nimalka Fernando as a commissioner to the Office of Missing Persons.

The forum urges the President to conduct an investigation into Nimalka Fernando as she had made several statements against war heroes at the Human Rights Council in Geneva, and to remove her from the Office of Missing Persons.

Meanwhile, issuing a communiqué, Minister Mangala Samaraweera stated that those who voiced their concern in the past 30 years about missing persons are now criticizing the move to establish an Office for the Missing Persons.
