Sri Lanka speaks to Pillai on Alston

The Sri Lankan government has expressed concerns to the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Navanetham Pillay on the recent conduct of the UN Special Rapporteur on Extrajudicial, Summary and Arbitrary Executions, Philip Alston.

The government has said that the move by the Rapporteur, last month, to make public a technical note of the investigations on the controversial Channel 4 video by a UN panel had breached the principles and practices of the UN Human Rights Special Procedures and Mechanisms.

The concerns were expressed by Minister of Disaster Management and Human Rights, Mahinda Samarasinghe when he met the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights in Geneva, reports said.
