Expressing concern over the statement issued by the HRC

The  Sri  Lanka  Collective  Against  Torture  (SLCAT)  is  gravely  concerned  about  the  statement  issued by the Human Rights Commission of Sri Lanka (HRCSL) dated 30 June 2022 titled ‘HRCSL  condemns  the  false  media  broadcast  made  by  the  President  of  the  Committee for  Protecting  Rights of Prisoners’.  

The Commission, at the conclusion of its inquiry into the allegation made by Mr. Senaka Perera,  President of the Committee for Protecting Rights of Prisoners, that imprisoned persons were used  on  9 May  2022  to attack  peaceful  protestors, makes many assertions and allegations  that are  detrimental to the safety and security of human rights defenders and freedom of expression.
