Navi Pillay due in Sri Lanka soon


United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay will visit Sri Lanka to assess the steps taken by the government of Sri Lanka to implement the recommendations of the Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission (LLRC), said SL External Affairs Minister Prof. G.L. Peiris in the Sri Lankan Parliament yesterday. During the debate on the action plan for the implementation of the LLRC recommendations, he said an official from Ms. Pillay’s office would arrive in the country soon to lay the groundwork for her visit. He said the government had invited her to visit Sri Lanka a long time ago, but that she had wanted to wait until the LLRC report had been submitted.    ]]>
