The UN’s Special Rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions, Christof Heyns has said that he wants to visit Sri Lanka.

 

In a report submitted to the UN Human Rights Council ahead of its 23rd session scheduled for next week, Heynes said he encourages the Governments of Sri Lanka to accept his pending requests for a visit.

 

The UN envoy had made repeated requests to visit Sri Lanka but has not received a response from the government.

 

In April 2011, the Special Rapporteur concluded that one Chanel 4 video on Sri Lanka was authentic and the events reflected in the video footage occurred as depicted.

 

In May 2011 the government had said it is ready to constructively engage with the Special Rapporteur in the future on the basis of transparency and fair processes being adopted.

 

The government said that progress achieved through domestic procedures and mechanisms will be communicated to the Special Rapporteur upon completion of internal processes.
