Sri Lanka Constitution

Verité’s work in this area includes de-mystifying and clarifying decisions and developments made in relation to the Sri Lankan Constitution.

In the past, Verité has analysed the ruling of the 19th Amendment (19A) Bill to the Constitution, including the basis on which the ruling was framed, and its implications for the executive power and the Office of the President. Verité’s legal team has also looked at the limitations under the 19th Amendment and its implications on the operationalisation of the Office on Missing Persons (OMP).

More recently, Verité provided insight to a discussion on women’s ability to purchase liquor in Sri Lanka. Verité’s analysis showed how the Cabinet decision to ban women from purchasing liquor was unconstitutional.
