Canada demands for foreign judges in Sri Lanka
Canada strongly demanded that Sri Lanka should fulfill its international commitments by ensuring the involvement of Commonwealth and international investigators and judges in the accountability process.
Addressing the 37th session of the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC), Canada said it fully supports efforts to bring dignity and justice to all those affected by Human Rights violations and abuses.
“The end of Sri Lanka’s 26-year civil war was an important moment, but it was only a first step. Frustrations persist amongst those seeking to heal the wounds of all those who suffered and wish to achieve real reconciliation,” Canada said.
Canada also recalled how to restore accountability to ensure the confidence of the parties who faced civil war.
Further speaking Canada pointed out that Sri Lanka should fulfill its promise to the International Community by involving Commonwealth judges for the accountability process.

Get lost Canada. Before . Before you talk about our Human Rights make sure you treat the Ignatius Red Indians well. After all that is their country. Canada belongs to them and not you bastards.
UNHRC is nothing more thana paper tiger. Most likely to justify UN’s mission in sri lanka.
the Canadians ought to be told that they cannot demand anything that violates the sovereignity of a country governed by a democratically elected legislature.
Having said that the UNHRC has a lousy track record and it is strange that the government sends delegations to listen to the same yarns again and again, it is only a bark with no bite and it is sole objective is to pander to a strog lobby from the tamil diaspora in canada that does not represent th ecanadian will. it is about time that canada bring to heel the tamils in Canada and not play polical games
very soon the delay in justice in our country will be of a distance past when our Supreme Court will complete a petition filed in the Supreme court within 2 months of filing a petition as required by article 126 (5) of our constitution
