Our High Commissioner to Sri Lanka has raised this point directly with members of the Sri Lankan government and in public statements. We also continue to call for the Commonwealth Ministerial Action Group, and the Commonwealth Secretary-General, to use their leverage to encourage Sri Lanka’s co-operation. <br><br>More recently, during the opening session of the UN Human Rights Council in September, our Ambassador to the UN also called upon the Sri Lankan government to co-operate with the investigation and ensure those co-operating with the investigation can do so without fear of intimidation or reprisal.</p> more like this
