Professor Emeritus Stuart Rees is the Director of the Sydney Peace Foundation (founder of the Sydney Peace Prize) at the University of Sydney, Australia. He has said about the on-going situation in Sri Lanka: “Respect for universal human rights is the test for any government which claims to be civil and democratic. The Government of Sri Lanka is failing that test. That government and those who support them will therefore have to sit the human rights exam again, but this time in full view of those international observers responsible for adherence to international law.”
