Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein is scheduled to visit Sri Lanka this year and there is a possibility the visit will take place before March.
However the High Commissioner’s office said the dates for the visit have not yet been confirmed.
“No confirmation of dates yet,” the High Commissioner’s spokesperson Ravina Shamdasani told the Colombo Gazette.
The High Commissioner has been invited to visit Sri Lanka and see firsthand the developments on the human rights issue after the new government took office.
The government is set to brief the UN Human Rights Council in June on the progress made in the domestic process to address accountability issues over the war. (Colombo Gazette)
