Prageeth Eknaligoda The Need To Tackle Impunity In Sri Lanka

That this House is very concerned about the case of Prageeth Eknaligoda, a Sri Lankan journalist and political analyst, who went missing on 24 January 2010; welcomes and supports his wife Sandhya Eknaligoda and Amnesty International’s campaign to investigate his disappearance; calls on the UK Government to raise Prageeth Eknaligoda’s case as a matter of urgency with the government of Sri Lanka to urge it to promptly investigate the case, as well as other disappearances brought to the attention of the relevant Sri Lankan authorities, make the results of those investigations public and bring to justice those responsible; and further calls on the UK Government to raise at the highest levels with the Sri Lankan government concerns about impunity, which effectively continues to deny victims of serious human rights violations and their families in Sri Lanka a viable domestic remedy, and has fuelled an on-going campaign of intimidation and violence against independent journalists, human rights defenders and government critics in Sri Lanka.
