Dayan Jayatillake, Sri Lanka’s envoy to the Human rights Council in Geneva had called the office of the UN High Commissioner Louise Arbour as unqualified to make unbiased reports on S.L’s human rights situation.

This irresponsible and uncouth utterance has been viewed with grave concern by Hillel Neuer; Executive Director of the Geneva based NGO who regretted the use of “ill advised language and the disputing of the UN’s jurisdiction to monitor the events in Sri Lanka.”

These statements of Dayan only underscored dangerous attempts of repressive regimes to keep out independent human rights scrutiny, he lamented.
