A delegation led by Attorney General Mohan Peiris have left for Geneva to attend the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) session, sources at the Ministry of Disaster Management and Human Rights told Daily Mirror online.

The 13th UN human right council session which began on Monday ends on the 26th of this month and representations are expected to be made by various organizations and governments on the human rights situation in Sri Lanka.
 

Human Rights Minister Mahinda Samarasinghe is not attending the session as he is involved in election related activities in Sri Lanka, Ministry sources said adding that the Attorney General and his team will take the Ministers place to counter any allegations that may come up at the sessions.

    What is the use? AG himself has been appointed in violation of the Constitution (17th Amendment) of the country. Will the authorities in HRC accept his submissions?

    Teach them how to protect the " Human Rights of Terrorists "!.

    Attorney General or Chief Justice will not be able to escape.

    This is a futile attempt and the world is more and more branding Sri Lanka as one of the top countries where HR is blatantly denied and violated.
    The only benefit is that AG Mohan Peiris and his clan will have a pleasure trip on our account. Enjoy guys while the sun shines.

    Minister Samarasinghe and his officials should thank SF for the increased number of foreign trips they got, at our expense.

    Another foreign trip opportunity for 'super class' on tax payers money.

    Exactly....

    when army was crushing LTTE say tamils get caught in the middle and died.... so what? whats the big issue?

    if there is a war people will die... its not new in this world.. recently NATO accidently killed Afagan people... like wise Army or LTTE would have killed tamils when finishing the war... so what?

    Minister, this Human Right issue is more important than the election work, put the country first.

    Wednesday, 03 March 2010 04:28 AM

    Minister Samarasinghe and his team should keep in mind that Human rights is not about sweeping charges under the carpet or releasing pigeons on the 10th of december. It is about uphoding the law with equality for all citizens
