  • That the abducted TRO personnel be released immediately
  • That all actors in Sri Lanka respect the status of humanitarian organisations and allow them to serve the affected populations
  • That the investigators should expedite the process of investigation and inform the families of the results
  • Care should be taken to ensure that the victims of such crimes are not further traumatized by the process of investigation
  • Protect the victims from retaliation for cooperating with the authorities
  • Widen the Civil Society support base for humanitarian workers so that a safety net exists that protects these workers
  • Protect humanitarian workers without regard to their ethnicity, religion, language group, culture or the geographic location in which they work.
