Christof Heyns, the UN Special Rapporteur on extra judicial, summary or arbitrary executions said he is awaiting Sri Lanka’s invitation to him to visit

Encouraged by the government’s progress on human rights in Sri Lanka, the top UN rights official has said he wants to visit the country as it has become more “receptive” to working with the world body.

Heyns said Sri Lanka stands out as the most defining moment when carrying out his mandate in 2015.

According to the UN Human Rights Council resolution of 2014, Sri Lanka was expected to allow visits by UN rapporteurs.
