Nambiar, Kohona assembling Ban's expert panel on war-crimes

[TamilNet, Friday, 26 March 2010, 04:19 GMT]
United Nations expert panel to advise Secretary General Ban Ki Moon on the accountability process required to address the alleged war crimes committed by Colombo and the LTTE, is being assembled by Moon's chief of staff Vijay Nambiar and Sri Lanka's UN representative Palitha Kohona, two officials widely believed to be complicit in the extra-judicial killing by the Sri Lanka Army (SLA) soldiers' of civil and political officials of the Liberation Tigers who surrendered to the SLA during the final days of the war in May 2009, Inner City Press (ICP) reported.

"My chef de cabinet has been meeting with Sri Lanka's Ambassador here," ICP said quoting Ban Ki Moon.

"There are the two people putting together the panel to advise Ban Ki-moon on accountability for war crimes in Sri Lanka. It is, one close observer told Inner City Press, like "two foxes studying the hen house," ICP said in its report.

The report also accused Mr Kohona of giving food baskets and $100 dollars to pro-Rajapaksa protesters who denounced Ban Ki-moon in front of the UN early March.
