Sri Lanka - Human Rights

Every human is born with certain basic rights such as life, health, freedom and protection against exploitation and crime. These rights are not something granted by any individual or the government. They are rights common to every human in this world. However, it is not uncommon to find those rights being exploited especially those of victims of war, prisoners, slaves, the poor and illiterate people. Human rights are often violated by individuals, the police, and the military and even by the governments of various countries.
