The Sri Lankan military held a lecture on ‘Human Rights and International Humanitarian Law’ in Mullaitivu earlier this month.
Soldiers were given a lecture on the subject as part of a training day “under the supervision of Major General P.U.S. Vithanage, Commander, SFHQ-MLT,” reported a military website.
The lecture was given alongside another talk on “Earth Moving Machinery”.
The Sri Lankan military, which was accused of committing war crimes in a United Nations report, is set to come under intense scrutiny after the government committed to setting up an accountability mechanism to punish violations of international humanitarian law.
