UNHRC Chief’s Visit not Linked to Geneva Resolution

UNHRC Pitches for Accountability of Sri Lankan Government www.ambitionias.com
  • The visit by the top UN official for human rights, Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein, to Sri Lanka has nothing to do with the implementation of the Geneva resolution, according to the government.
  • He had told the media in September that “our investigation has laid bare the horrific level of violations and abuses that occurred in Sri Lanka”.
  • Mahishini Colonne, spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, said the visit was in response to an invitation extended by the government in February 2015.
