UN Urges on Global Participation in Sri Lankan Civil War Probe

UNHRC Pitches for Accountability of Sri Lankan Government www.ambitionias.com
  • UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon has reiterated the need for global participation in accountability probes into alleged human rights abuses and war crimes during Sri Lanka’s brutal civil war.
  • The UN chief’s comments came following Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisena’s interview in BBC in which he ruled out the participation of international judged in the inquiry.
  • It should be noted that the UN Human Rights Council resolution last October has prescribed a mechanism with the participation of international judges, prosecutors and investigators.
