UN Human Rights Chief orders probe into intimidation of Tamil activists at UNHRC

UN Human Rights Commissioner, Zeid Raad Al Hussein, expressed his concern regarding the reports of intimidation against Tamil activists in Geneva.

“Assistant Secretary-General Andrew Gilmour, the system-wide coordinator for action on reprisals, will be looking into this, and I trust, Mr President, you will also give these cases close attention,” he said.

International rights activists have given information to UN authorities regarding the harassment of Tamils who have been involved in the process in Geneva.
