A team of Lankan diplomats are pouring over the United Nation document on human rights accountability in Sri Lanka, which was submitted to UN secretary general Ban Ki-moon earlier this week.

So far, the government has come out with only a brief statement on the report, calling it “flawed’’ and “biased."

While demands have already being made, it is not clear when the report would be made public either by UN or the Lankan government.

The report essentially recommends or advises the UNSG on how to deal with the alleged violations of human rights during the civil war that ended in May, 2009.

Expectedly, the advice has been forwarded to the Lankan government.

Fearing anti-UN reaction as it happened in June, 2010 when formation of the panel was announced, UN employees were apparently made to go through drills on how to face demonstrations if protests broke out after the report was submitted.
