The United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) has urged the Sri Lankan Government to accelerate the pace of fulfilling all the obligations with regard to the human rights issues in the country.
The United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein, said yesterday that the absence of credible action in Sri Lanka to ensure accountability for alleged violations of international human rights law and international humanitarian law makes the exercise of universal jurisdiction even more necessary.
According to the UN News Centre, Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein urged the Sri Lankan Government to accelerate the pace of fulfilling all the obligations in the consensual resolution HRC 30/1 adopted by the UNHRC in October 2015.
