Release of Khulumani Associate and Human Rights defender Ruki Fernando in Sri Lanka

Khulumani Support Group welcomes the release of Mr Ruki Fernando along with Father Praveen Mahesan after their arrest last Sunday, 16 March 2014 on charges under the draconian Prevention of Terrorism Act (PTA) in Sri Lanka. Khulumani was the beneficiary of Mr Fernando's vast experience as a human rights defender in his own country over 6 months during 2013.

Khulumani notes that the PTA was enacted as a short-term measure of the Sri Lankan government in 1979 and has never been repealed despite its violation of founding principles of the country's Constitution.
