Sources in Geneva, said the change of mentality in New Delhi, is the substance of the resolution won the extra votes he needed to go through and links the government of Sri Lanka to the United Nations system to monitor the implementation of LLRC recommendations.
The resolution now joins the SL government to present a comprehensive program "as quickly as possible" with information about what he had done so far on the recommendations LLRC and henceforth would on your application and also alleged violations of international law.
What I really resent the SL government these days, but now have that honor is the intervention of the Office of Human Rights Council (OHRC) in providing advice and technical assistance in the execution steps, the SL government include in its implementation program.
Politically, it is now to see how the SL government to reconcile this new international link with its base of voters who have moved against the U.S., Brittain, India and the Human Rights Council and in particular head Navy Pillai, who is scheduled to visit Colombo in May this year.
