US Embassy ‘concerned’

The United States Embassy in Colombo has expressed its concerns over the appointment of Lt. General Shavendra Silva as Army Commander. In a statement the Embassy said: “The United States is deeply concerned by the appointment of Lt. General Shavendra Silva as Army Commander.

The allegations of gross human rights violations against him, documented by the United Nations and other organizations, are serious and credible.

This appointment undermines Sri Lanka’s international reputation and its commitments to promote justice and accountability, especially at a time when the need for reconciliation and social unity is paramount.”
