News: Moving towards accountability
Posted Date: 18/09/2015 (Friday)
Accountability for past excesses is not easily achieved in post-conflict societies, but its need and relevance cannot be brushed aside. Fostering peace and reconciliation among formerly feuding sections of society, and finding constitutional solutions to core political issues are often the final objectives. However, transformative and substantive justice requires establishing the truth about past crimes perpetrated as part of a deliberate policy. The human rights investigation report on Sri Lanka, submitted to the UN Human Rights Council by the High Commissioner for Human Rights, seeks to address the crucial question of accountability in the island nation for the “horrific crimes” committed by all parties to the conflict that ended in 2009.

News: Critical Moment In Geneva - But Will the Tamils See Justice?
Posted Date: 16/09/2015 (Wednesday)
In the closing stages of Sri Lanka's 26 year civil war in 2009, government forces closed in on the beleaguered Tamil Tigers and encouraged Tamil civilians to seek refuge in "no fire zones". These no-fire zones were then systematically shelled by the army. Thousands of Tamil civilians died. Between 1956 and 2001, it is alleged that the Tamil population suffered over one hundred massacres. Other communities have also suffered as a result of the Tigers, as well as at the hands of the state. I heard horrendous stories from Tamil constituents of the violence that took place in Sri Lanka. It was these haunting experiences that were relayed to David Cameron when he visited Jaffna in 2013.

News: Sri Lanka Official on Reconciliation
Posted Date: 16/09/2015 (Wednesday)
A particularly shocking finding, the United Nations report says, was “the extent to which sexual violence was committed against detainees, often extremely brutally, by the Sri Lankan security forces” during and after the conflict, with men and women victimized. Torture by the security forces was widespread, systematic and premeditated, particularly in the aftermath of the conflict, the report says, describing centers equipped with metal bars for beating, barrels of water for waterboarding and pulleys for suspending victims.
