The Commonwealth Lawyers Association yesterday, passed a resolution on Sri Lanka calling for the island to be suspended from the commonwealth over allegations of serious and persistent violations of the Commonwealth fundamental values.


The resolution jointly submitted by the Commonwealth Lawyers Association, the Commonwealth Legal Education Association and the Commonwealth Magistrates’ and Judges’ Association at a special plenary session during the Commonwealth Law Conference in South Africa.


They also urge members of the Commonwealth to reconsider the holding of the next Heads of Government Meeting in Sri Lanka as to do so will tarnish the reputation of the Commonwealth.


It also calls upon the Members of the Commonwealth, through the Commonwealth Ministerial Action Group, to place Sri Lanka on the agenda of its next meeting on 26th April 2013.


When asked to comment on this, Secretary of the Ministry of External Affairs Karunatilake Amunugama said that the government would not concern much on such a resolution as far as it has no any diplomatic accredit-tation.
