Foreign minister Mangala Samaraweera is scheduled participate in a high level UN Human Rights Council session tomorrow

The foreign minister would also meet UN Human Rights Commissioner Seid Rad Al Hussein today.

Minister Samaraweera will be discussing the report prepared by the UNHRC with the UNHRC commissioner.

Meanwhile, The Hindu newspaper reported that the U.N. probe report on alleged war crimes committed during the final phase of the war has been handed over to the Sri Lankan government.

The report, scheduled for public release during the 30th Session of the UN Human Rights Council which kicks off tomorrow in Geneva, was received by the government day before yesterday.

The presentation of the report was deferred until this month by the UNHRC as a goodwill gesture towards the government of President Maithripala Sirisena.

The Hindu quoted sources saying that Sri Lanka has five days to make its response in writing.

The report and Sri Lanka’s response would be submitted at the UNHRC session only at the end of this month.
