UN chief calls on Sri Lanka to cooperate in human rights abuse probe

United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki—moon has reiterated his call to Sri Lanka to cooperate with the on-going UN investigation of alleged human right abuses.

Responding to a media query on Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa reiterating that he will not participate with outside investigations, Stephane Dujarric, Spokesman for the Secretary-General, was quoted by the Lanka Page web site, as saying that the Secretary-General has always encouraged the Government of Sri Lanka to comprehensively address the post-war agenda.

Colombo has vehemently refused to cooperate with the UN Human Rights Council-led investigation.
