United Nations Special Rapporteur on the promotion of truth, justice, reparation and guarantees of non-recurrence, Pablo de Greiff, was expected to arrive in Sri Lanka today (10) on a 2-week visit.

The UN official will examine the progress made in redressing the legacies of massive past violations and abuses, including those that resulted from a conflict that spanned more than 25 years.

The UN Office in Colombo said that in 2015, the Sri Lankan government committed itself to designing and implementing a comprehensive transitional justice strategy.

"My visit aims to review the progress made thus far, to identify obstacles and bottlenecks in the implementation of the transitional justice and reform process, and to discuss opportunities with the government and Sri Lankan society to overcome these," de Greiff said.
