The High Commissioner for Human Rights Prince Zeid al-Hussein said on Friday that he will look into the new Sri Lankan president’s rejection of a visit by the OHCHR team to Sri Lanka and rebuttal of credible evidence of mass atrocities.
Responding to a question by Tamil Guardian regarding the new Sri Lankan president’s rejection to allow the OISL team into Sri Lanka, and rebuttal of mass atrocities evidence from the No Fire Zone documentary, he said,
“I haven’t seen these reports yet and will have to look into the alleged reports. The Sri Lankan government has given me its commitment to accountability and working with the UN. In the past the new president has also said he will not deny what happened in 2009.”
