“Protect the Tamils in SL against Human Rights violations” – Indian MP tells UNHRC


Indian MP Anbumani Ramadoss has written to the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) urging the Member States to pass a strong resolution affirming an international commitment to protect human rights and justice in Sri Lanka.

He requested the Member States to take measures to protect the Tamil population of Sri Lanka against human rights violation.

In particular, he requested to create mechanisms to find a lasting political solution under the arbitration of the international community in a way that fulfills the long standing legitimate aspirations of the Tamil people.

He requested that their physical security and political authority to be granted to decide their own political, cultural, economic and social affairs.

In order to further this, he requested the OHCHR field officers be placed in the Northern and Eastern Provinces to monitor and report ongoing violations.

Ramadoss commended the resolution to be brought against Sri Lanka at the 46th UNHRC Session.

He urged that the UNHRC vote for a resolution which implements the process of bringing accountability and justice for the victims of alleged crimes (war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide) in Sri Lanka by referring the case or creating an appropriate international criminal justice mechanism.

He also recommended the establishment of an international independent investigative mechanism to assist in the investigation and prosecution of persons responsible for atrocities.

He also called on Member States as requested by the High Commissioner to support relevant proceedings.
