Legal experts say that the UN Human Rights Council has no jurisdiction to proceed with the resolution that was forwarded by the US against Sri Lanka.

Commissioner of the Sri Lanka Human Rights Commission, Senior Attorney at Law Prathibha Mahanamahewa stated that the reason for this is because a local mechanism was already in place.

He also stated that Sri Lanka’s Permanent Representative in Geneva had also raised objections over the resolution put forward by the US.
