Several trade unions and civil society groups have lodged an official complaint, with the Human Rights Commission of Sri Lanka (HRCSL), seeking a probe into alleged acts of assault, shooting and murder of unarmed civilians by the tri-forces and the Police during the recent protests and demonstrations.

Through the complaint these trade unions and civil society groups have charged that the actions of the three Armed Forces and the Police during the recent spate of protests, held to demand the ouster of Gotabaya Rajapaksa and Ranil Wickremesinghe, had blatantly violated their fundamental rights.

Hence, via their complaint the trade unions and the civil society groups have stated that the present Government has continued to violate the fundamental rights of the people and they have urged the HRCSL to probe these alleged acts and to submit a report to this effect.
