A letter addressed to the United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon from the wife of missing journalist Prageeth Eknaligoda has been received by the UN office in Colombo.

“A letter addressed to the Secretary General has been received by the Resident Coordinator Neil Buhne and is being forwarded to the Secretary Generals office,” the UN office in Colombo told the Daily Mirror.

The UN in New York revealed earlier that it was unaware of the petition handed over by Sandya Eknaligoda on January 24. “We’re not aware of a petition having been handed in”, Spokesperson for the Secretary-General Martin Nesirky had told a press briefing.

 “We’ll check again, but the latest that I had was that we are not aware of a petition having been handed in”, Nesirky added.

    Good but what could the UN do about it? It couldn't even send its human rights panel to SL.
