The permanent mission of Sri Lanka to the United Nations Office at Geneva says that Sri Lanka will not cooperate with the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights’ comprehensive investigation.

Issuing a statement, Sri Lanka‘s Permanent Mission to the UN in Geneva said Sri Lanka has re-iterated its categorical rejection of the Human Rights Council resolution on Sri Lanka, adopted at the 25th session, and that Sri Lanka will not cooperate with the OHCHR-driven “so called comprehensive investigation”.

The statement reads that Sri Lanka has observed that the government is firmly committed to continuing its ongoing processes of reconciliation, nation-building and accountability, and towards this end, will continue to work with countries, inter-governmental and non- governmental organisations that are genuinely interested in the welfare of the Sri Lankan people.

The twenty-sixth session of the UN Human Rights Council commenced in Geneva, Switzerland on Tuesday.

The sessions that commenced on Tuesday will continue until June 27.

This is incidentally the final session of the Human Rights Council where Navanethem Pillay will preside as the High Commissioner for Human Rights, prior to the expiration of her term.
