The government of Sri Lanka will protest strongly against the taking up of the Darusman report at the United Nations Human Rights Council both in Geneva and the General Assembly in New York next week, Minister of External Affairs told the Daily Mirror.

“We will protest the taking up of this report at the UNHRC sessions very strongly, in Geneva and when President Mahinda Rajapaksa and I visit New York next week for the General Assembly,” he said.

The Lankan delegation to New York will also address the issues of the impartiality of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navanethem Pillay and breach of procedure in presenting documents not sanction by the UN at the UNHRC sessions. “During our bi-lateral meetings on the fringes of the General Assembly we will address these issues and call for even handed treatment of Sri Lanka in accordance with the formal procedures of the UN,” he said.

UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon on Monday sent the report prepared by his Panel of experts to the UN Human Rights Council. (Dianne Silva)

    what china and Russia will do now?

    Shand Tuesday, 13 September 2011 08:18 AM

    This is good for Sri Lanka. Now you will see veto power of Russia and China in action.

    Liya Tuesday, 13 September 2011 08:33 AM

    No, the Beginning of the End was when one brilliant guy decided to close the Mavil Aru gate. This is just a passing echo from the Big Bang.

    It is a well known fact that accused never accept their guilt!!!

    who are u

    Rajan Tuesday, 13 September 2011 06:29 PM

    This is another eye wash by all the big countries. West countiers and India do not want to be seen as siding with Sri Lanka but do all the support hiding from the screen and Russia and China publically supporting Sri Lanka.

    All want to end this matter in a clever way. This is another version of terrorisom.

    IND Tuesday, 13 September 2011 08:53 AM

    Good one. Still VP is searching the person who close the Mavil Aru in the hell !!!

    I guess if Hitler had been alive today, he would've also vehemently protested against any criminal proceedings brought against him. Just like SL.

    SAM FERNANDO Tuesday, 13 September 2011 12:06 PM

    CAN ANYONE IN THE GOVERNMENT REPLY THIS BY TELLING THIS FORUM, WHY YOU ARE OBJECTING TO AN INTERNATIONAL INQUIRY? WHY ARE WE SPENDING A COLOSSAL SUM OF PUBLIC MONEY BY FLYING THESE GUYS AROUND THE WORLD TO PROTEST AGAINST A POSSIBLE INTERNATIONAL INQUIRY BEING LAUNCHED. WHO IS GOING TO GAIN MOST OR LOSE IF AN INTERNATIONAL INQUIRY IS LAUNCHED?
    THE ARGUMENT THAT POSSIBLE SANCTIONS AGAINST SL IS BUNKUM IN A SITUATION LIKE THIS.

    hisham Tuesday, 13 September 2011 09:15 AM

    If Hitler had been alive there wouldnt be UN

    Rattapakse Tuesday, 13 September 2011 09:32 AM

    Get your fact right!!!

    There is no veto power game in UNHCR . That is only in UN security council.

    Decision taken by majority votes.

    Why do you think the West took this route?
