UN Secretary General Ban ki-moon says that his Chief of staff Vijay Nambiar and Sri Lanka’s Permanent Representative to the UN Dr. Palitha Kohona are currently working on the composition of the panel of experts which will advice him on Sri Lanka.

Speaking to reporters at the UN Ban ki-moon said that he is now in the process of finalizing the panel and his envoy, Lynn Pascoe, will visit Sri Lanka in the near future to discuss the matters with the Sri Lankan government.

“I’m in the process of identifying persons who can work in the panel of experts. My chef de cabinet has been meeting with the Sri Lankan ambassador here and they are now in the process of making a move on this, and I expect that Mr. Lynn Pascoe will be able to visit Sri Lanka in the near future to discuss all the matters,” the UN Chief told reporters.

When contacted Foreign Minister Rohitha Bogollagama told Daily Mirror online that Dr. Kohona had met Nambiar on several occasions to discuss various issues and the government’s official response on the panel will be made after the terms of reference of the panel is made public.  (JN)

    Mixed signals! Appears that Moon has somehow managed to proceed on what he insisted on doing ... now, with the implied consent of the SL administration?

    Do not trust Russia and China very much, now these two countries are slowly drifting against Iran in the nuclear issue.A lesson to Sri Lanka.

    Thursday, 25 March 2010 10:15 PM

    This is how the world of justice is maintained by the UN - a failed organization.

    Thursday, 25 March 2010 10:31 AM

    The govt rejects the panel in sinhalese & agrees in english

    Thursday, 25 March 2010 10:44 PM

    We need to have another inquiry to find out whether the deliberate ignorance of any of the UN's representatives, did facilitate human rights violations, during the war?

    Thursday, 25 March 2010 05:07 AM

    Mr. Moon, Please SIR, WE WANT DEMOCRACY and Human rights Protected in our country .Take action before its too late.

    Thursday, 25 March 2010 05:14 AM

    I thought govt was against the appointment of this panel?

    Thursday, 25 March 2010 05:16 AM

    Nambiar will be invited by kohanna for a fine dinner.

    Thursday, 25 March 2010 05:41 AM

    Solheim,Milliband,Chandrika and Jayalath are the most suitable and personal for the panel.

    Thursday, 25 March 2010 12:38 PM

    Why should Kohonna get involved if Sri Lanka does not want this panel to probe the war? His getting involved shows that the SL rep is working with the Sec Gen Lalith Wije

    Thursday, 25 March 2010 01:10 PM

    Thursday, 25 March 2010 03:13 PM

    Why has Mr Moon not asked for a panel to look into the "human rights" in China?
