The Northern Provincial Council (NPC) yesterday passed a resolution to request the UNHRC to establish an International Court to look into the alleged war crimes committed by the armed forces during the wartime in the province.

The resolution, which was submitted by Councillor M.K. Shivajilingam, was passed with a majority at the 117th council session held at the Provincial Council premises at Kaithady.

Mr Shivajilingam said the government had failed to probe into war crime charges though the UNHRC had requested it to do so during the previous UNHRC sessions in Geneva.

“A probe by the Government to solve human rights violations cannot be trusted. Since the latest UNHRC session has begun, a resolution should be sent to it,” he said. (Romesh Madushanka)

    If you want int'l court for war crimes committed by the forces, you people should be responsible for the crimes the terrorists committed all over the country for over 30 years?

    So you are equating the terrorists to legal army of the country? So tomorrow if an army fellow rapes your daughter, it should not be investigated, correct?

    @Buffcitizen: your comment is totally irrelevant to the comment above. The question was: why not the crimes committed by the tamil terrorists over the 30 years!
