Sri Lanka: open letter to the President of the Human Rights Council concerning the panel of experts report

The United Nations Secretary-General, Ban Ki-Moon, transmitted to the President of the UN Human Rights Council the report of his Panel of Experts on Accountability in Sri Lanka.

The report includes various conclusions and recommendations, including those directed to the Human Rights Council itself.

A coalition of non-governmental organisations has, by open letter, called on the President of the Council to issue a President’s Statement inviting the Government of Sri Lanka and the UN Secretary-General to present to the Council the Panel of Experts report and the Government’s own investigations during the 19th regular session of the Human Rights Council in March 2012.
