However, a majority of the foreign media had reported today that a report against Sri Lanka will be presented at the UNHRC based on a comment made by one of the US assistant secretaries of state James Moore who is currently touring the country.

 

The reports stated that Moore had made a comment saying that the report will be based on human rights, war crimes as well as the impeachment of the former chief justice.

 

Meanwhile, the 3 US assistant secretaries of state who are visiting the country are scheduled to meet with representatives of civil societies today.

 

Prior to this they had toured the North and met with representatives of the TNA and the UNP.
