UN envoy condemns Kandy violence, urges action against perpetrators

Jeffrey-Feltman-7000-01

UN Under-Secretary-General for Political Affairs Jeffrey Feltman has condemned the violence in Kandy and urged the government to ensure the maintenance of law and order.

He has also urged the government to act fast and bring the perpetrators of violence against Muslim minorities to book and to take precautionary measures to prevent recurrence.

He concluded a three-day visit to the island on March 11. During his scheduled visit to Sri Lanka, he met with President Maithripala Sirisena, Prime Minister Ranil Wickramasinghe, Speaker of Parliament Karu Jayasuriya, Foreign Minister Tilak Marapana, Opposition Leader R.Sampanthan and other political leaders and cabinet and government officials. He also had the opportunity to meet with the members of Sri Lanka's diverse civil society, human rights representatives, and the diplomatic corps.

He expressed hope that the OMP will soon be fully operational to help answer questions that haunt too many families from all across Sri Lanka about their missing loved ones. He lauded the Parliament's recent adoption of the Bill for the Protection Against Enforced Disappearances as an important element of the Sri Lankan government's commitment to its citizens.

He expressed concern that many elements of the Government's visionary 2015 program seem stalled, despite their importance to sustainable peace, security and prosperity in Sri Lanka, and he appreciated the reassurances from Government leaders of their intention to move forward.
