Pillay's Panel: A Diplomatic Drone Attack Against Sri Lanka - Dayan

Former Sri Lankan diplomat and veteran political commentator Dayan Jayathilleke says the panel of experts appointed by UN Human Rights Chief Navi Pillay to assist the international inquiry panel on Sri Lanka is a diplomatic drone strike against the Sri Lankan government. 

“ This suggests that the panel will look into the recent anti-Muslim riots in Aluthgama. Within days after Navi Pillay condemned the riots and called upon Colombo to protect all religious minorities she appointed Asma Jahangir to the investigation panel," Jayathilleke said in an interview with 'The New Indian Express'.

“The UN fact finding mission on the Gaza conflict had only one person - Richard Goldstone - but the inquiry panel on Sri Lanka is a troika. It is very strong, and heavily front-end loaded,” he added. 

International media reported that the 12 member the UN War Crimes Inquiry Panel on Sri Lanka will present its preliminary findings in September, regardless of the Sri Lankan government’s cooperation with the OHCHR-led inquiry.
