COLOMBO: Sri Lanka’s new government, much-dependent on international aid to tide over its worst economic crisis, came under fresh pressure from the global community, human rights groups and the opposition on Saturday as they urged President Ranil Wickremesinghe to immediately order security forces to stop use of force against peaceful protesters.
Sri Lanka’s security forces forcibly evicted anti-government protesters camped outside the presidential office in Colombo in a pre-dawn raid on Friday on the order of the new president.
The opposition urged newly-appointed PM Dinesh Gunawardena to summon a session of the parliament on Monday to discuss attacks on peaceful protests. Leader of the opposition of Sri Lanka, Sajith Premadasa has already expressed concern over the attack on protesters. “There is no denying there was excessive use of force and it was uncalled for. Nothing can justify this inhumane act, the law must be followed by all,” he tweeted on Friday. On Saturday, he again urged the government should ensure the violence is not repeated.
Meanwhile, tourism minister Harin Fernando has said Wickremesinghe will likely expand his cabinet to make it representative of all parties in parliament. Fernando, however, did not give any timeframe.
