COLOMBO (News 1st) -The five-year action plan on human rights in Sri Lanka is due to be presented today (19th March) for the approval of the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva.

Speaking to News 1st, Ravinatha Aryasinha, Sri Lanka’s Permanent Representative to the UN Human Rights Council said the preliminary draft was submitted to the Commission in November 2017.

The five-year action plan was scheduled to be presented for approval on last Friday (16th March). Unfortunately, it was postponed until today (19th March) due to some interruptions by the trade union action from a number of UN employees in Geneva.

According to Ravinatha Aryasinha, the report on Sri Lanka’s Human Rights will be taken up for discussion on 21st March. Minister of Foreign Affairs Tilak Marappana and Senior Minister Sarath Amunugama are due to take part in the discussions.
