The British Foreign Affairs Committee report said that the UK should negotiate with the EU to remove trade benefits granted to Sri Lanka, if the government not allow UN investigators into Sri Lanka or stop activists engaging with the UN.
Highlighting further concerns over witness intimidation following David Cameron’s visit to Jaffna, the Committee urged the British Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) to report on how individuals at risk in Sri Lanka had been monitored, in a report published today.
The report also urged the UK to apply pressure on the new Indian government to give public support to the United Nations Office of High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) investigation into Sri Lanka.
Sri Lanka was a country of concern in the Foreign Affairs Committee report alongside Burma, Israel and the Palestinian Occupied Territories.
