Minister of External Affairs, Professor G.L. Peiris met the Resident Coordinator of the United Nations, Subinay Nandy today and conveyed to him, the Government’s extreme discontent regarding the unprofessional manner in which the investigation on Sri Lanka is being conducted by the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights.

The Minister’s protest to the UN Resident Coordinator focused on the unacceptable way in which the deadline for submission of evidence to the investigation, 30th October, that had been originally set by the OHCHR had been changed unofficially and re-set once again.

As per the OHCHR’s call for submissions on its website, 30th October deadline, ,was definite and mandatory.

The Minister pointed out that what was particularly disturbing was that this development took place while a campaign to collect fabricated evidence was under way in Sri Lanka with the collusion of both local and foreign parties.

During this period, evidence was being concocted fraudulently in Sri Lanka on blank sheets of paper, with signatures procured under false pretences and with financial inducements.

One of the main agents in this criminal enterprise was arrested, while another has left the country unlawfully.

Expressing objection to OHCHR’s conduct that is inconsistent with essential standards of objectivity and fairplay, Professor Peiris questioned why such irregular behaviour has to be resorted to in carrying out this investigation which claims to be open, candid and fair.
