New UN Human Rights Chief, Prince Zeil Al Hussein says his predecessor Navi Pillay has rendered a yeomen service during her tenure at the UN.

The new Human Rights Chief made these remarks today addressing the 27th session of the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva.

UN Human Rights Chief, Prince Zeid Ra'ad Zeid Al-Hussein says he attaches great importance to the United Nations Human Rights Council mandated probe on Sri Lanka.

Prince Zeid encouraged the Sri Lankan authorities to cooperate with the investigation process in the interests of justice and reconciliation.

Sri Lanka maintains that the probe is an unnecessary and unethical intrusion into the nations' sovereignty and the government has rejected the investigative panel appointed by his predecessor Navi Pillay and announced that the OHCHR team will not be given permission to conduct an investigation in the country.

The new rights chief is scheduled to present on 24th September an oral update from the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights on the situation in Sri Lanka as a follow up to its resolution adopted in March establishing a commission of inquiry.
