COLOMBO (News 1st) - The UN Human Rights Committee will hold its upcoming session from 27 February to 24 March, during which it will review six countries including Sri Lanka.

The other parties are Egypt, Turkmenistan, Zambia, Peru, and Panama.

The six parties are among the 173 members of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.

They are required to undergo regular reviews by the Committee of 18 independent international experts on how they are implementing the Covenant as well as the Committee's previous recommendations.

The Human Rights Committee, which has received the respective country reports and other submissions from non-governmental organisations, will discuss a range of issues with the six delegations through public dialogues.
