Sri Lankans in Europe protest against the UN Expert Panel report in Geneva

June 02, Geneva: Sri Lankans domiciled in Europe launched a silent protest today (02) opposite the United Nations office in Geneva against the controversial report of the Panel of Experts appointed by the UN Secretary-General to advise him on the accountability of Sri Lanka during the last stage of the war against Tamil Tiger terrorists.

A large number of Sri Lankans gathered at the venue where the 17th session of the UN Human Rights Council is currently in progress.

Sri Lanka rejected the UN report, called locally as the Darusman Report, as ‘fundamentally flawed in many respects’ and ‘based on patently biased material which is presented without verification.’
