In their attempt to consolidate power, Sri Lanka’s authorities have criminalized freedom of expression, and equated dissent with treason. Those who dare to criticize the authorities are pursued and silenced. As described in this report, Sri Lanka is failing to comply with its international obligations to respect and protect the rights to freedom of expression, peaceful assembly and association, as well as other rights. Sri Lanka must end its assault on critics, publicly acknowledge human rights abuses by its forces and supporters, and ensure accountability.
