In his opening statement to the 29th Session of the Human Rights Council Zeid Ra’ad Al -Hussein, United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights says that the new government in Sri Lanka has passed a constitutional amendment which, if implemented appropriately, brings renewed hope for democracy and the rule of law.

Speaking at the session, he said that OHCHR will remain very engaged in discussions with the Sri Lankan authorities on the need for transparent and inclusive processes to develop credible mechanisms for accountability and reconciliation, ahead of his report to the September session.

Speaking further, he said that he encourags the government to consult broadly with all political parties, civil societies, and above all victims and their families, to ensure full national support and ownership of these processes.
