UN leader Ban Ki Moon on Monday sent a report accusing Sri Lankan troops of killing tens of thousands of people in an offensive against Tamil separatists to the UN Human Rights Council, bringing an international inquiry one step closer.

Mr Ban has said that he alone cannot order an inquiry into the killings - which the Sri Lankan government has strongly denied - but that a forum such as the Human Rights Council could do so.

UN spokesman Martin Nesirky said the report had been sent to the Human Rights Council and the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights.

A panel of experts named by Mr Ban said in April that the Sri Lankan army killed most of the tens of thousands of civilian victims of a final offensive against Tamil separatists in 2009 but both sides may be guilty of war crimes. (AFP)

    If someone raped your wife, is it OK if it's done in another country? When you have not experienced the abuse yourself, its easy to shout against an inquiry! Shame on you!!!

    We all Sri Lankans must rally together and defend the country and the war heroes, put aside the politics, language and religions. If you look at irag, afghan and libya, this is really a tragedy???

    Very Good

    What has Ban done against Israel ? He will not do anything, he can only do such things with small countries like Sri Lanka.

    WAIT FOR FINAL DECISION.

    Roger Tuesday, 13 September 2011 11:37 AM

    I will wait for the end result. All these are political games. Well Srilanka has all the reasons to be concerned about.

    IND Tuesday, 13 September 2011 08:42 AM

    Well said.

    IND Tuesday, 13 September 2011 08:51 AM

    It's just a mistake. They might say sorry after killing all in Iraq.

    Rattapakse Tuesday, 13 September 2011 08:55 AM

    End of the day, in marketing terms, it call positioning.

    Pirapaharan positioned himself in such a way for Eelam cause and so he could not be flexible or accommodating to the expectation of the world and so achieved nothing.

    Now Rajapakse positioned himself not to be accommodating to world expectation in relation to post LTTE Tamil national issue.

    Now the later is facing the music.

    kalum Tuesday, 13 September 2011 08:52 AM

    Still they want give war crime.
