Sri Lanka's Counter Terrorism Bill falls far short of Government's pledges to UNHRC to end abusive detention without charge, says HRW

Human Rights Watch (HRW) in a statement on May 18 said Sri Lanka's Counter Terrorism Bill falls far short of the Government's pledges to the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) to end abusive detention without charge, reports Colombo Page. While the Counter Terrorism Act (CTA), which is drafted to replace the draconian Prevention of Terrorism Act (PTA) improves upon the PTA, it would still permit many of the abuses occurring under current law, and raises a number of new concerns, the Human Rights Watch said. The Cabinet approved the third draft of the CTA on May 3, 2017, but no parliamentary vote has been set. HRW says through recent interviews it has found that torture remains endemic throughout Sri Lanka, including through the use of the PTA. As part of its undertakings for security sector reform at the UNHRC in October 2015, the Sri Lankan Government pledged to repeal and replace the PTA.
