UN Special Rapporteur to visit Sri Lanka in October


The United Nations Special Rapporteur on the Promotion of Truth, Justice, Reparation and Guarantees of Non‐Recurrence Pablo de Greiff announced that he will be visiting Sri Lanka next month.

Mr de Greiff told the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva that the Sri Lankan government had invited him to visit the island from 10 to 23 October 2017.

The Special Rapporteur last visited the island in 2016, where he reiterated the importance of victim participation in an accountability mechanism for mass atrocities.
