Mr. Peiris also rejected the allegation of Sri Lanka leaked the UN Panel of Expert report to a local media. The minister queried as to why Sri Lanka should leak it when the Government of Sri Lanka had already requested the UN not to make it (the Panel Report) public.
The Government of Sri Lanka had already rejected the report when it was handed to it as fundamentally flawed and patently biased.
“The report is flawed in his entirety” reiterated Mr Peiris
