Carrying the Sri Lankan flag, protesters from the group, Global Sri Lankan Forum, condemned the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein and accused him of acting beyond his scope, Adaderana reported. 

The protest comes as Sri Lanka faced renewed calls to fulfill the commitments it made in the co-sponsored resolution of 2015.
