The Sri Lanka Human Rights Commission (HRCSL) said it has received nearly 11,000 public complaints so far and there is a shortage of staff to effectively address these complaints.
They said this when they met President Ranil Wickremesinghe at the Presidential Secretariat Yesterday afternoon, President’s Media Division (PMD) said.
They also raised concerns about the challenges arising from a shortage of staff in effectively addressing these complaints.
President Wickremesinghe assured them that prompt measures would be taken to address the staff shortage issue and find swift solutions to the pending complaints.
He emphasized the importance of resolving these matters efficiently.
The President requested the Human Rights Commission to expeditiously develop and present a comprehensive set of guidelines for government officials and the police. He believed that such guidelines could potentially help reduce the number of complaints reaching the Commission.
