“The government prosecuted a very small number of officials implicated in human rights abuses but is yet to hold anyone accountable,” it added.

Although the number of killings associated with government para military groups had declined from 2011, the report charged government-allied Eelam People’s Democratic Party (EPDP), led by Minister of Social Services and Social Welfare Douglas Devananda, of engaging in intimidation, extortion, corruption and violence against civilians in Jaffna.

The other issues listed in the country report include enforced and involuntary disappearances and widespread impunity with the government failing to solve attacks on journalists.
