Northern Provincial Council of Sri Lanka Passes A Resolution
Demanding International Investigation Into War Crimes Against Tamils
03 September, 2015
Questioning the credibility of Sri Lankan state agencies to investigate war crimes against Tamils C.V. Wigneswaran, the Chief Minister of Northern Provincial Council (NPC) on 1st September passed a resolution rejecting the domestic inquiry process being proposed by the USA and other powers. In the new resolution, the NPC has once again demanded a credible international investigation mechanism. Mr Wigneswaran, the NPC chief minister, who was a former Supreme Court Judge of Sri Lanka, cited previous examples of domestic failures including the earlier commissions that had international participation. Explaining the nature of crimes and legal circumstances prevailing in the island, the suggestion of domestic mechanism would be a ‘travesty of justice’ the CM proclaimed in the resolution.
