Human Rights Watch said that Sri Lanka made little progress in 2013 in accountability for human rights abuses committed during the war that ended in 2009.

Stating in its world report for 2014, HRW noted that as the UN and international condemnation escalated, human rights activists and journalists critical of the government continued to face intimidation and threats.

Asia Director at Human Rights watch Brad Adams said that the Sri lankan government makes a lot of claims about pursuing accountability for  abuses, but the world is still waiting to see some results.

He also added that its clearer than ever that an independent international investigation is needed to make genuine progress in providing justice for victims.
