Sri Lanka human rights situation deteriorates: UN Special Rapporteur 

United Nations Special Rapporteur on the promotion of truth, justice, reparations and guarantees of non-recurrence, Fabian Salvioli told the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva yesterday that Sri Lanka has witnessed a profound deterioration in the human rights situation over the past 18 months. 

He said that there has been insufficient progress in relation to the search for the truth, and the flagrant setback in the areas of accountability, memory and guarantees of non-repetition.

He further said that the situation jeopardizes the transitional justice process in Sri Lanka.
