India confirms support for UNHRC on Lanka war crimes

E-mail Print
India would definitely extend its support to the United Nations Human Rights Committee (UNHRC) when it would visit Sri Lanka to study the allegations of massive human rights violations during the final phase of the war against the LTTE in 2009, says Union Minister of State for PMO V Narayanasamy.

“Not only in Sri Lanka, if war crimes and human rights violations are reported in any part of the world, India will not remain a mute spectator and will strongly oppose it,” Narayanasamy said.

He said that the Prime Minister will nt allow Human Rights violations to take place in any part of the world.

In march this year, India along with 24 countries voted against Sri Lanka today at a session of the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva. The US had sponsored resolution for ‘promoting reconciliation and accountability’ in Sri Lanka after the army defeated the Tamil Tigers in a 26-year-long civil war. UNHCR is one of the main providers of humanitarian assistance to IDPs and returnees in Sri Lanka.

India is Sri Lanka’s largest trade partner overall and Sri Lanka is India’s largest trade partner in South Asia. India has emerged as the largest foreign direct investor in Sri Lanka. India also contributes to the largest number of tourists arrivals in Sri Lanka. (Frontier India News Network)

It is all about money. The power brokers in Colombo (Colombians) need handouts from abroad to maintain their life styles and would do anything their masters ask

Surely SL (Rajapaksa's) will never obey to Indian Strategy. So, India is blackmailing with war crimes.

Thousands are murdered within India's borders, in Kashmir by Indian troops. Indian troops massacred and robbed Tamils. India won't be a mute spectator? Idiotic minister, a TN product?

Saskiam, talk facts or shut up. Don't base your judgement on rumours, baseless allegations and 3rd party information.

Mr Lobo, how do you know that it is rumour and baseless? Were there any investigation done? SL should prove that its forces were not involved in any killings and rapings of tamil civilians. It can only be proved by allowing an international investigation.

What facts you are refering to? The mere fact of refusal to independant investigation itself is sufficient to prove the criminal act. You guys are still dreaming.. More than 100,000 civilians are unaccounted for and you wanted us to elieve that they had gone to Mars.

saskia even humanrights groupes have not accused SL on rape. if these happened i find it amusing that refugees are returning in numbers back to SL from TN after the war. tdy even from aussi despite given the option of remaining. so the fact is they could not stand LTTE terror. you need to be matured b4 posting such comments

If SL forces not comited war crime why do they fear. US Parliament also going to bring a resolution to investigate HR in Sri Lanka.

Time Sri Lanka realized its position is the international community. Sri Lanka is a small developing country saddled with war crimes. Until this issue is sorted out legally this will be the music.
