CPA and other civil society actors have continuously called on the State and other actors to address the deteriorating human rights and humanitarian situation, the reconstitution of the Constitution Council and the appointment of the independent commissions including the Human Rights Commission (HRC) in accordance with the law and the Constitution.
Civil society actors welcomed the announcement on September 4, 2006 by President Rajapaksa of an international independent commission to probe abductions, disappearances and extra-judicial killings in all areas of Sri Lanka. In January 2007, CPA raised issues related to the subsequent appointment of the Commission of Inquiry (CoI) and the International Independent Group of Eminent Persons (IIGEP). This document comments on the developments since their appointment and recommends the following to the Government and other actors.
