An Overseas Justice and Security Assistance (OSJA) assessment was completed before HMS Montrose visited Colombo and engaged with the Sri Lankan Navy in April 2019. We regularly review and update our OSJA's to ensure that human rights and International Humanitarian Law risks are considered prior to providing justice or security sector assistance.
