Call for probe unwarranted -Govt.

2010 Dec 20

The Ministry of External Affairs yesterday said that the US lawmakers’ call for a global probe into alleged rights violations by Sri Lanka in the last stages of the conflict , were ‘unwarranted’.

“We have a robust domestic mechanism in the Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton herself has said the Commission must be given time and space to complete its task,” Ministry of External Affairs Director General of Public Communication and Spokesperson Bandula Jayasekera told Daily Mirror.

Dozens of US lawmakers on Friday urged a global probe into alleged rights violations by Sri Lanka in the last stages of its civil war, saying Colombo's own efforts do not ensure accountability.

In letters to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, 17 senators and 30 members of the House of Representatives called for the United States to seek a United Nations role investigating last year's finale of the Tamil Tiger insurgency.

“We strongly believe that any conclusions reached by the Sri Lankan government's commissions must be verified by a parallel international mechanism backed by the United Nations,” the senators wrote.
