BASL urges to revoke Emergency proclamation | Breaking News

The Bar Association of Sri Lanka (BASL) has stated that it is of the view that a declaration of a state of emergency is not the answer to the present situation in the country, and has called upon the President to revoke the Emergency proclamation.

In a statement, the BASL states that unfortunately, those in authority have until very recently failed to understand the gravity of the situation and the grave impact the crisis has on the life of the people and the community.

It adds that the state of emergency must not be used to stifle peaceful protests and dissent or to make arbitrary arrests and detentions.
