Amnesty International said in a report released today ‘Assault on Dissent’” that The Sri Lankan government is intensifying its crackdown on critics through threats, harassment, imprisonment and violent attacks.

Polly Truscott, Amnesty International’s Deputy Asia Pacific Director said The CHOGM meeting must not be allowed to go ahead in Colombo unless the government has demonstrated beforehand that it has stopped systematic violations of human rights.

External Affairs Minister G. L. Peiris said foreign intervention in Sri Lanka’s internal affairs — such as the pursuit of social harmony — will be counterproductive.

He was speaking at the Lakshman Kadirgamar Institute for International Relations and Strategic Studies.

The event marked the inauguration of a series of discussion on Sri Lanka’s National Policy on Social Integration.
