    This deposition should have been given during the 2018 UNHRC resolution discussions, nevertheless it is better now that we have a firm timeline and sri lanka cannot play the same set of joker cards when the strict sanctions are on the horizon.

    Excellent move. Making this issue non voteable will not leave any room for SL to talk humbug on delays in implementation next time.
