    Fully agree. The biggest war criminals such as Adele Balasingham are enjoying British government protection and the other financiers who contributed to the LTTE war chest and pulled the strings for decades are now holding their meetings in the House of Commons.

    Wait until some of your "war heroes" will enter Germany for a holiday. Because Germany is not biased they will be also punished.

    Oops! This could reciprocal and will send shivers down the spin of so called legalized killers.

    What about the war crimes committed by armed forces? So they can do anything they want? Why this new non-sense?

    The Sri Lanka government need to be happy and thanks the German Government for this action. I hope they will prosecute all war criminals. There are a lot riding high in Sri Lanka.

    Do you really think you can blame the actual victims of terrorism and fool the world terrorists as victims? World is learing about terrorist lies and deceptions

    There are thousands of these TIGERS( not the innocent ,peace loving ordinary Tamils who live in harmony with the others all over Sr Lanka) still in SL and in UK. Canada and Europe. This is a wake up call for these nations. All these countries have impartial and clean legal systems but are reluctant to take action .Basically it comes down to harbouring and protecting terrorists and those who aid and take part in terrorist activities.

    Shouldn't Germany file legal action against the US president for violating intellectual property rights for copying HITLER?
