New laws to revive dormant treaties :
Sri Lanka is bracing itself to draft a fresh National Human Rights Action Plan (NHRAP),
with a deadline to complete by September this year.An authoritative source said the NHRAP will be Sri Lanka’s trump card when the
country’s human rights situation is taken up for discussion at the third
Universal Periodic Review (UPR) in Geneva next year. The Action Plan will also
partly fulfil the conditions the country has to meet under the European Union’s
tough regulations for GSP plus trade concessions.
