UN expert on debt, human rights to visit Sri Lanka
The United Nation’s Independent Expert on foreign debt and human rights, Juan Pablo Bohoslavsky, will pay an official visit to Sri Lanka in September at the invitation of the Sri Lankan government, the media reported on Friday.
Bohoslavsky said his visit is aimed at collecting first-hand information and examining questions related to debt and other financial obligations from a human rights standpoint, Xinhua news agency reported.
“The purpose of the mission is to identify good practices, challenges and potential gaps to be addressed,” he said.
“An important objective of my visit is to study the effects of public debt and related polices on the full enjoyment of human rights,” he added.
During Bohoslavsky’s visit from September 3-11, he will pay specific attention to the incorporation of human rights standards in international development financing, microfinance, and efforts deployed to prevent and combat illicit financial flows in the country.
“I look forward to engaging with the authorities of Sri Lanka, civil society, academics, the international community and other relevant stakeholders,” Bohoslavsky said.
The Independent Expert will submit a comprehensive report about his visit to the UN Human Rights Council in March 2019.

The United Nation is a joke and don’t let these pathetic basterds to come and dictate to us.
Actually Ranjith, you are spot-on.
He is supposed to “collect first-hand information and examining questions related to debt and other financial obligations from a human rights standpoint”.
He said “An important objective of my visit is to study the effects of public debt and related polices on the full enjoyment of human rights,” .
Does this guy know what he is talking about? He appears to yet another UN Wanker who is holidaying in SL at SL Taxpayer expense.
The most shocking part of the story is “he will pay an official visit to Sri Lanka in September at the invitation of the Sri Lankan government, ”
Who is the Yahapalana wanker invited this UN Wanker?
Mr Fiery Fernando. These are drop outs employed by the UN just for the fun of staffing there establishments. For Sri Lankens as long as they have the white skin they treat them like gods where in western world these hippies are treated like shit. Look at him like as scrupey school boylook and stupidity is written all over hid face.
the more we stay clear of the UN agencies the less likley we will fal into the debt trap. since independence sri lankan balance of payment had been adverse yet sri lanka imports had been on free fall importing second hand cars and to run a massive inventory of spare parts and gas to run these cars to nowhere. But then the globla economy runs on debt with the americans leading the way with trillions of dolaars and sri lank debt in contrast is insignificant and as long as we have land we are creditworthy and sri lankan land trasactions are executed in dollars!!!
this guy is wasting his time in trying to figure out as to how or economy runs. If the halfwits in the government cannot sort it out no expeert can deal with the problem it is best that we get a psychic to do the job
This guy is not wasting his time nut he is wasting our time. Where do you get these crap from?
