UN's Navi Pillay attacks Sri Lanka human rights record
UN Human Rights Commissioner Navi Pillay has sharply criticised the government of Sri Lanka, at the end of a week-long visit.
In a statement, Ms Pillay said she feared the country was becoming increasingly authoritarian.
Since the civil war ended four years ago, democracy had been undermined and the rule of law eroded, she added.
