BRITAIN DEMANDS PROGRESS ON SRI LANKA RIGHTS

0

COLOMBO: Britain’s top envoy to Sri Lanka on Wednesday announced the British government will use next month’s Commonwealth summit to pressure host Colombo to make “concrete progress” on human rights and probe alleged war crimes. The three-day Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM), starting on November 15, is being boycotted by Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper who accuses Sri Lanka of failing to ensure accountability for rights violations during and after the civil war.
