This Stakeholder Report focuses upon capital punishment. We make recommendations to the Government of Sri Lanka on this key issue, implementation of which would also see Sri Lanka moving towards achieving Sustainable Development Goal 16 which aims for peaceful and inclusive societies, access to justice for all and effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels.

We urge the State to make practical commitments in the fourth cycle of the UPR for the abolition of the punishment. As an initial step, we call for the suspension of the capital judicial process through the initiation of an official moratorium on the death penalty. This will enable the government to make a positive commitment towards domestic de jure abolition.
