The core group of countries working on Sri Lanka’s issue at the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) will be ready with the final version of the resolution after another session of informal consultations with the states interested in the issue, an official said yesterday.

During the past week, such sessions were conducted on the resolution which Sri Lanka has already rejected. The United Kingdom which leads the core group called for these sessions.

The western countries, particularly those in the Scandinavian region, asked for strong wording of the resolution amidst objections by the member states that back

Sri Lanka. China, Russia, Cuba and Pakistan are among the countries that lead support for Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka has made engagements with India to woo its support, but there was no commitment even yesterday. (KELUM BANDARA)

    Hi Jude If UNHRC doesn't exist we can't even imagine what will happen to the civil and human rights of our ordinary citizens. Just look back all the human rights violations created last year alone.

    @ Jude. UNHRC hand on the war criminals. Do not STOP before they are in The Hague.

    India has acts to balance out; Geo Politics and Tamil Nadu. It does not want Sri Lankan assets being sold out to China bit by bit for its own security.

    It's outrageous, our right to observe faith disturbed,our right of living is deprived,no personal security at all, in some families all of them massacred, all happened barely two years ago around Colombo,reason is we are not follow the same faith as murderers, they were misguided by misreading their holy text, we appeal to you to take this in final version of resolution, this could repeat again, and its serious than burying or cremation of a death body, DM pl.let UNHRC to see this

    How silly this UNHRC is? I was surprised to read blaming the government not allowing Muslim covid dead to bury that due to exper, but nowhere it mentioned, non Muslims are at risk of their humanrights, basically their lives at risk , this seems Ms.Bachalet had read a note written by a local bias politician, I invite Ms.Bachalet to read more on Easter Sunday 2019 massacre in Colombo,and understand the gravity of the situation
