Global Tamil Forum calls for end to culture of impunityView(s):
The Global Tamil Forum (GTF) says it strongly believes that without taking decisive steps to “end the culture of impunity prevalent in the country,” the Sri Lankan people will “only face more doom and gloom in the future.”
Issuing a statement welcoming what it says is a “comprehensive report” from the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, the Joint Statement from the Core Group of countries and India’s intervention during the Interactive Dialogue on Sri Lanka held in Geneva, the GTF stated that these reports and statements “highlight Sri Lanka’s continuing failure to fulfill its own commitments to justice, accountability and reconciliation.”
The “outright rejection” of key sections of the High Commissioner’s report by the Ranil Wickremesinghe-led government shows the prospects for accountability within Sri Lanka is non-existent, said the GTF. “In this hopeless reality, the only hope for accountability for the crimes committed in Sri Lanka is through the UNHRC based, Sri Lanka Accountability Project (SLAP), and we are grateful to the High Commissioner for his update on this important work.”
The GTF also noted that it strongly supports an international investigation into the Easter Sunday attacks, as called for by senior opposition political leaders and leaders of the Catholic Church in Sri Lanka.
