Sri Lanka’s people have been through a long history of war, causing its people to suffer devastating loss. The Government has promised to make changes, but the people of Sri Lanka are continuing to suffer at the hands of police power and the government. Basic human rights are greatly curtailed by the Country’s laws. The United Nations has decided to step in, and hopefully bring the long-awaited justice Sri Lankan people deserve.
