General debate on human rights in Sri Lanka to be held next week

British MPs are to hold a general debate on the motion on the UK’s commitment to reconciliation, accountability and human rights in Sri Lanka. The UK Parliament announced that the general debate will be held in the Chamber on Thursday 18th March.

This debate was put forward by backbench MPs Siobhain McDonagh, Elliot Colburn and Sir Edward Davey.

The British Tamil diaspora are urged to contact their regional MPs to engage in the upcoming debate so that the accountability of the victims of the Sri Lankan state’s human right violations, war crimes and genocide are ensured.
