Lawyers barred

Two senior international lawyers, including a United Nations Special Rapporteur on judicial independence, have been denied entry to Sri Lanka in the latest sign of a state-led crackdown on dissent before a summit of Commonwealth leaders next week. Gabriela Knaul, UN Special Rapporteur on the Independence of Judges and Lawyers, and Param Cumaraswamy, who once held the same post, were among a high-level delegation from the International Bar Association's Human Rights Institute who were due to travel to Colombo next week. They were scheduled to attend a meeting addressing the independence of the legal profession in Sri Lanka on November 13, two days before the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting.
