Wijeyadasa and Sabry to leave for Geneva
The Minister of Foreign Affairs and the Minister of Justice are among the group officials preparing to leave for the 51st session of the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva.
The session will take place from the 12 September to 7 October.
In addition to ministers Ali Sabry and Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe, officials of the two ministries and the Attorney General's department will be part of the Sri Lankan contingent.
Sri Lanka hopes to highlight the 22nd amendment to the Constitution and its democratic provisions, the decision by the government to bring in a National Security Act instead of the Prevention of Terrorism Act and the new laws against bribery and corruption.
A group of representatives from the Human Rights Council has visited Sri Lanka last week, to observe the prevailing human rights situation.
