High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay will undertake a visit to Sri Lanka from 25 to 31 August 2013, in response to an invitation formally extended to her by the Sri Lankan government in April 2011, the government said.

Addressing the Human Rights Council -23rd Regular Session in Geneva today Permanent Representative of Sri Lanka in Geneva and the Leader of the Sri Lanka Delegation Ravinatha P. Aryasinha said that Sri Lanka considers this visit as part of its continued, transparent and proactive engagement with the High Commissioner and the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR).

“We believe that the visit would enable the High Commissioner to experience at first hand the significant strides made and also efforts presently underway in the reconciliation process in Sri Lanka, in the relatively brief period of 4 years since the end of the ruthless terrorist conflict that decimated our nation and its peoples for 30 long years.”

He also said, “We hope that through the visit, a platform will be built for constructive engagement between Sri Lankan Government and the OHCHR, laying by the fallacies that have in recent years guided the UN system's actions and engagement with respect to Sri Lanka and its reconciliation process.”

    Go to Palestine and you will see human rights abuses in broad daylight !! No one does anything about that !

    Nishant Tuesday, 28 May 2013 01:28 AM

    If SL govt is planning the visit agenda for her here, it will be an absolute waste of time and money. The Itinerary need to be independently plan by UNCHR. Doubt this will happen!

    Critic Roshan Tuesday, 28 May 2013 01:48 AM

    She has arranged the trip to witness the Kandy Esala Perahera.

    David - Can you please list out the injustices that the Tamils are exclusively faced with compared with the rest of the pop ulation? OR are you deliberately confusing justice for Tamis with their 'Aspirations, which we all have

    S de Silva, if you are still not aware of the injustices, you must have been living in another planet the last 30 years

    mani Tuesday, 28 May 2013 04:56 PM

    There might be a lemon puff shortage.

    Upali Monday, 27 May 2013 11:49 PM

    Whether we like it or not, we cannot ignore the realities. If we think Navi Pillay is biased, let's face that fact and show her the evidence to the contrary, to eradicate such biases. Because the so-called super powers listen only to her, not to us. Let's welcome her and get this opportunity as Ravinatha hopes, to correct any misunderstandings. It's true that you can wakeup a truly sleeping person but you can't wakeup a pretender. But let's be positive until we see the negative.
