The Hindu website says that a report on alleged human rights violations in Sri Lanka during the Eelam War is likely to be presented on September 30, during the 30th session of the United Nations Human Rights Council.

It says:

According to the current time table, it will be taken up during the third and final week of the Council’s session, which starts on September 14 and concludes on October 2. It is expected to go on for three hours on September 30.

Prepared by the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Investigation on Sri Lanka, the report is a result of a resolution adopted by the UNHRC in March 2014, requesting the Commissioner to “undertake a comprehensive investigation into alleged violations and abuses of human rights and related crimes by both parties in Sri Lanka during the period covered by the Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission.”
