While claiming that the disappearance of any journalist anywhere is a matter of concern, the United Nations today said the letter from the relatives of missing Sri Lankan journalist Pradeep Eknaligoda is ‘now being reviewed’ by its’ New York office.

Spokesperson for the UN Secretary-General, Martin Nesirky, told the daily UN media briefing in New York that “the letter to the Secretary-General, which was transmitted to New York by the UN Resident Coordinator in Colombo, had been received.” He also said that the letter was also channelled to colleagues in the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights. “And that letter is now being reviewed. We’ve asked for an update on this, and will let you know when we have it,” Mr. Nesirky said adding that “the disappearance of any journalist anywhere is, of course, a matter of concern, and not just to the Secretary-General.”
