Amnesty urges Lankan Authorities to “Stand down immediately”

The Amnesty International has called upon the Sri Lankan Authorities to stand down immediately after security forces stormed the ‘Gota Go Gama’ protest site at Galle Face Green in the early hours of Friday (22).

“The right to protest must be protected. Sri Lankan Authorities must immediately cease these acts of violence and release those arrested unlawfully in this manner“, said Amnesty International issuing a strong statement condemning the crackdown initiated by security forces.

The Organisation also urged Sri Lankan Authorities to ensure the safety of Journalists covering the incident.

“Authorities must also protect the freedom of the press. Journalists must not be barred from ‘Gota Go Gama’. Blocking Journalists from doing their jobs directly violates freedom of the press“, added Amnesty.
