Sri Lanka faces international censure over arrests

Sri Lanka’s new Government came under international censure over the use of tough anti-terror laws to detain protesters who forced Gotabaya Rajapaksa to step down from the Presidency in Sri Lanka.

Canada, the European Union, the United Kingdom, and the United States are among the countries that have raised concerns over the use of the Prevention of Terrorism Act (PTA) on protesters in Sri Lanka.

Three student activists arrested last week during the first anti-Government protests after the end of a State of Emergency were being held under the PTA.

The PTA allows suspects to be detained for 90 days without judicial review.
