Jan 28, Colombo: The United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) at its 22nd session will consider and adopt the final outcome of the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) on Sri Lanka.
The UNHRC will hold the 22nd regular session from February 25 - March 22 in Geneva and Sri Lanka's UPR is among the reports of 13 other countries to be adopted at the session.
Sri Lanka's UPR was held on November 1, 2012 during the UNHRC's 14th session in Geneva. Sri Lanka rejected 98 and accepted 111 recommendations submitted by countries at the UPR.
Sri Lanka would also face the review of the US sponsored resolution on Sri Lanka adopted at the 19th session of the UNHRC last March calling on the implementation of the Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission (LLRC) recommendations.
In September, an Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) mission visited Sri Lanka to explore possible areas of cooperation.
The Human Rights Council has adopted new resolutions on country situations, requesting OHCHR to report on Sri Lanka along with Mali, South Sudan, and Yemen and strengthened technical assistance on Sri Lanka.
