The United Nations yesterday expressed regret over the leak of the UN Panel report, to the media, before it was officially made public.

“Well, we’ve certainly regretted the leaking of this report,” Farhan Haq, Acting Deputy Spokesperson for the Secretary-General said addressing yesterday’s media briefing in New York.

“We are nevertheless pressing ahead with our own review of the Panel of Experts report on Sri Lanka.  So once the Secretary-General and his senior advisers finish that review, we will make the report public.  And that will happen later this week.  It is not expected for today, and yes, we are aware of the consequences of this leak, and we have already made clear our dismay at that,” he said.

At Monday’s briefing Haq said that the report had leaked to the media shortly after the UN gave the report to the Sri Lankan government.

“It did leak to a Sri Lankan newspaper, and it leaked shortly after we gave the report to the Government of Sri Lanka.  But I don’t know definitively who it was who turned this over,” Haq said.

    Absolutely No Problem when ;

    1) Indian IPKF doing HR violation in Sri Lanka in 1987-88
    2) Govt of Sri Lanka in1989 supresing JVP with greater HR violations
    3) US, England and others doing violations in Iraq number were is very greater and continuing same
    4) Targetting innocents and killing many friendly fires in Afganistan
    5) Chidren and infants by Isreal in Plaestine openly ,

    But ....
    when Sri Lanka eliminate 30 year old terrorism it was the HR violation and panels are appointed.
    I can not understand why countries still opt to have their represntation with UN (which is Un Necessary wasting of time)

    We also Regret about you !.

    JUSTICE Wednesday, 20 April 2011 07:52 AM

    No need to regret just act on it. Civilized people will regret if the UN does not bring justice for what they have set out to do.

    Wara Wednesday, 20 April 2011 08:35 AM

    We too deeply regret to see such dump report from UN.

    Epa Wednesday, 20 April 2011 02:42 PM

    firstly do civilize the people who are in UN wasting member countries money like their personal property.

    Thank you Russia. It is time the world gets together and expose these dishonest Western politicians. The West has effectively been infiltrated by Tamil terror-supporters. Greedy Western politicians, lured by promised votes and "campaign Money" (aka Terrror-Money) have sung to the tune of these inferiority-ridden magalomaniacs, and continue to haress Sri Lanka while ignoring the MILLIONS they have killed "justifiably" in Iraq and Afganistan. BanKi Moon, a spineless puppet, continues to appease his Western Masters, and ignores the crimes committed by the Allied forces.
    It is about time the world reallizes these facts, and act to prevent a total monopolization of the so-called "United Nations" by power-crazed and greedy Western politicians.
