The United Nations has again requested Sri Lanka to establish a hybrid court consisting of international judges, lawyers and investigators to probe war crime allegations during three-decade long LTTE war. The demand had been rejected by Sri Lankan government earlier saying it has its own strong justice system.

The annual report on Sri Lanka presented to the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) at its ongoing session in Geneva recommended the government to adopt legislation establishing a hybrid court to investigate allegations of human rights violations. 

It recommended that the Government promptly investigate and prosecute all allegations of torture and other gross human rights violations and give highest priority to long-standing emblematic cases so as to regain public confidence in the justice system. 

Sri Lankan government has requested for more time and roll over of resolution which it co -sponsored in 2015 to promote reconciliation, accountability and human rights in the country. Sri Lankan President has requested the international community to let Sri Lanka solve its own problems adding that independence of a country is very important.
