UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navanethem Pillay had said that she would head a team to Sri Lanka in January next year to look into the alleged war crime charges, the PTI reported quoting a statement issued by the India’s DMK party.
Pillay had informed this, when a two-member delegation of DMK led by its Treasurer M K Stalin met her in Geneva on Monday.
Stalin, accompanied by DMK Parliamentary Party Leader T R Baalu, during their 35-minute meeting with Pillay handed over the resolutions adopted by the party-backed pro-Sri Lankan Tamils outfit TESO, approved by party chief M Karunanidhi, and briefed her about the plight of Tamils affected in the last phase of Eelam War Sri Lanka.
A DMK release also stated that Pillay told the delegation that in consultation with UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon an appropriate decision would be taken with regard to alleged human rights violations in Sri Lanka.
The resolutions were adopted in the August 12 conference of Tamil Ealam Supporters' Organisation (TESO), once defunct organisation revived by Karunanidhi recently.
