The Madras High Court has dismissed a petition which sought to recall Permanent Representative of India to UN Offices in Geneva, Dilip Sinha for allegedly disregarding India's stand while voting on a US-backed resolution against Sri Lanka for alleged human rights violations in the UN Human Rights Council in March this year.

Justice M Sathyanarayanan dismissed the petition by K Balu of Pasumai Thayagam Foundation who had alleged that Sinha had voted in favour of an adjournment, sought by China and Pakistan, and deletion of paragraph 10 of the resolution, even though India had decided to abstain from voting at the 25th session of UNHRC held in Geneva from 3rd to 28th March last year.

Balu, who participated in the session, submitted the Union Cabinet Ministers had disowned the stand taken by Sinha.

When the petitioner has failed to show any legal right to compel the Centre to do so, a direction cannot be issued.

The judge added that the petitioner assumed that Sinha had acted contrary to India's written explanation but its contents did indicate otherwise.
