Commonwealth Human Rights Initiative has today called upon civil society actors in Sri Lanka to demand the roll back of the regressive restrictions on their Right to Information.
Issuing a statement today the CHRI said; “Draft Article 14A has not been placed in the public domain for obtaining people’s views. As RTI is an empowering right, people must be involved fully in its formulation as it is their right. CHRI urges the Government to engage the people of Sri Lanka through a widespread consultative process on the language and contents of Draft Article 14A.”
