* Pillay's letter to be tabled in Sri Lanka parliament tomorrow
Thu, Jun 12, 2014, 09:47 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

June 12, Colombo: Sri Lanka government sources said that the party leaders of parliament will meet tomorrow to take a decision on a date to debate the UNHRC probe on Sri Lanka.

The letter sent by UN High Commissioner of Human Rights Navi Pillay will be tabled in parliament tomorrow, the sources said.

The debate on the UNHRC probe is likely to be held next week, when parliament convenes on June 17.

The government has already announced at the 26th session of UNHRC that is currently underway in Geneva that the investigation will not be supported by Sri Lanka.

However, the opposition United National Party argued that having a debate and a vote in Sri Lanka parliament may show that there is at least minority support to the probe in Sri Lanka.

The opposition parties, as well as the UK and US have urged the Sri Lankan government to cooperate with the UN probe.
