Sat, Aug 23, 2014, 01:13 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Aug 23, Colombo: India, Pakistan, and China have refused to provide information to the United Nations team appointed by the High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay to probe the alleged human rights violations during the conflict in Sri Lanka, according to a local newspaper report.

These three countries have supplied arms and technical assistance to the Sri Lankan government for the Wanni offensive against the Tamil Tiger terrorists, the online edition of Sinhala daily The Divaina reported Saturday.

The report further said these three countries have not accepted the UN probe and the refusal by to provide necessary information by them has seriously subjected the Commission to a difficult situation.

The High Commissioner for Human Rights has earlier said that the UN team will seek information from outside Sri Lanka and visiting Sri Lanka is not necessary to conduct an effective investigation into the alleged war crimes.

She also noted that Sri Lankan media reports have spread false information to discredit the UN inquiry.
