Two more years to implement Sri Lanka co-sponsored UN resolution

(COLOMBO, LANKAPUVATH) – Sri Lanka has been given 2 more years to implement Sri Lanka co-sponsored 30/1 Geneva resolution 2015 without any amendment or new suggestions by the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC), said the Acting Foreign Minister Dr. Harsha De Silva.

He with authority said that no new clauses have been added to the resolution such as establishment of Hybrid Courts or involvement of Foreign Judges and added this is only a ‘Technical Roll Over’.

He made these remarks on Wednesday (08) addressing media at the Department of Government Information (DGI).

The Minister further added that Sri Lanka still has not accepted the report presented by the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein and will express its opinion after discussing with all relevant parties in that regard.

Acting Foreign Minister also quoted the Sri Lanka’s representative who addressed the Council in Geneva, “We are studying all their reports carefully and we will at a suitable time share our views and observations on the issues raised in the High Commissioner’s latest report after consultation with all parties concerned and also provide updates.”
