The 25th session of the United Nations Human Rights Council commenced in Geneva today.

The inaugural statement was made by UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon followed by UN Human Rights Council Commissioner Navaneedan Pillai.

Ban Ki-moon, during his statement, applauded the report presented by Navaneedan Pillai on the accountability and reconciliation process in Sri Lanka.

The UN Secretary General further said that Navaneedan Pillai acts fearlessly to protect the rights of the oppressed.

In her statement before the session, Pillai stated that making any accountability process successful on the basis of rule of law is still a distant dream.

She insisted that governments should stop all acts of vengeance against UN representatives and other individuals who work with the UN.
