HRCSL demands withdrawal of gazette decreeing ‘High-Security Zones,’ says it grossly violates fundamental rights

The government’s decree on the establishment of high-security zones via the Official Secrets Act grossly violates the fundamental rights of the people of this country, the Human Rights Commission of Sri Lanka (HRCSL) said in a statement.

The HRCSL stated that the notion that such high-security zones be declared under the provisions of the Official Secrets Act is a fallacy without any justification or basis and the government, therefore, cannot adopt such a declaration.

It urged the government to immediately withdraw the gazette bearing No. 2298/53 dated September 23, 2022, which decreed the establishment of such zones.
