Motion against Sri Lanka rejected in German Parliament



A motion against Sri Lanka titled – ‘Use the UN Human Rights Council and demand Observance of Laws, Human Rights and Reconciliation Process in Sri Lanka’ has been defeated at the German Bundestag (German Parliament).

The motion had been put forward on Thursday by the opposition Social Democratic party (SPD) group in the Parliament.

Parliamentarian Jürgen Klimke speaking for the ruling Christian Democratic Party (CDU) party group had argued that there is no need for the motion as the Federal Government was already actively working with the international community and the Sri Lankan government to address issues related to it. The motion had been defeated by the votes of the governing coalition in the German Bundestag.
