The Human Rights Commission of Sri Lanka (HRCSL) Wednesday decided to set up a Special Task Force to monitor all relief and rehabilitation works to Tsunami victims in the country to ensure equal distribution to all affected parties. A decision to this effect was taken at top-level meeting held at the headquarters of the HRCSL presided by its Chairperson ms Radhika Cumaraswamy, sources said.
Then HRCSL has empowered its regional offices in the country to entertain complaints from people who are deprived of their relief and other assistance in the Tsunami disaster and forward them to the Colombo headquarters for further action, the sources said.
The HRCSL Special task Force would monitor the flow of foreign aid to the country and disbursement of such aid to the people, the sources said.
