UN Human Rights Chief Navi Pillay has called on the Sri Lankan government to consider cooperating with the probe on Sri Lanka led by the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR).

In a release copy of the opening statement due to be delivered by Pillay at the 26th UNHRC session on Tuesday, June 10, she has confirmed her office has ‘put in place a team that would be supported by several experts and Special Procedures mandate holders’ to conduct the comprehensive investigation on Sri Lanka mandated at the UNHRC in March.

She has noted the investigation will advance accountability and thus reconciliation and has thereby encouraged the Government of Sri Lanka to ‘take the opportunity to cooperate with a credible truth-seeking process.’

She has also noted that although Sri Lanka celebrated its fifth anniversary since the end of the 26 year-long conflict, the scars created by terrorism and conflict are ‘yet to heal’.

The OHCHR led investigation on Sri Lanka to probe into serious violations and abuses of human rights and related crimes by both parties, was mandated through a US-backed resolution at the 25th UNHRC session held in March with 23 countries voting in favour.  The 26th UNHRC session that commences on June 10 is scheduled to continue until June 27.(Lakna Paranamanna)

    That means all innocent Tamils civilians were Terrorist. Is that what you mean?

    amal Saturday, 07 June 2014 09:49 PM

    Get real ms Pillay, what human right are you talking about? What about the LTTE ?
    Are you on GTF pay roll?

    war and bureaucracy?

    Navi Pillay
    The retarded mentality of some of the Sri Lankan's are very real.
    They believe that by burying their heads in whatever the truth will go away.
    This is not because of the corrupt Politicians alone, it is because of the average Sinhala man, his mentality.
    A simple equation tell me why there would be nearly 60 registered Political parties for a voting population of 14 Million voters. THIS IS A RECORD FOR THE GUINESS BOOK
    FOR EVERY SEAT OF THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT ELECTIONS, THERE ARE OVER 20 CONTESTANTS.
    This too is a world record.
    Therefore please note that this puerile vacillating mentality is embeded in the majority of Sri Lankan's.
    Therefore please be patient and investigate whoever is responsible for torture murder and rape let their identities be known.
    That will be the turning point for Sri Lanka.

    Come on miss Pillai first tell us how those LTTE cadres got UNHCR certificate as refugees? tell us who has been appointed? is it the same LTTE sympathiser from the Darusman report, was that impartial ? they did not even visit Sri Lanka and you based your whole agument against Sri Lanka on that report so why visit Sri Lanka now?
