Dublin follow-up on Sri Lanka war crimes

[TamilNet, Sunday, 03 October 2010, 15:33 GMT]
School of Law and Government of Dublin City University together with Irish Forum for Peace in Sri Lanka are holding two events this week as follow-up to the Dublin war crimes tribunal on Sri Lanka held in January this year. Dublin findings issued at the end of the hearings said, Sri Lanka Government is "guilty of War-Crimes" and "guilty of Crimes Against Humanity." The tribunal also concluded that the charge of Genocide requires further investigations. Eye witnesses included several escapees from the final week of Sri Lanka offensive in the Mullaitivu "No Fire Zone" where more than 20,000 Tamil civilians were allegedly slaughtered by Sri Lanka Army (SLA) training heavy weapons on them.

In the first event to be held on the Wednesday 6th October, Denis Halliday, former Assistant Secretary General of the United Nations is scheduled to speak on "Dublin Verdict on Sri Lanka: What is to be done?" at the Business School in Dublin City University.

This will be followed by another event on Thursday, 7th October, at the Synge Theatre in Trinity Colloge Dublin, where Mary Lawlor, Director at the International Foundation for the Protection of Human Rights Defenders, will join Halliday to speak on "War Crimes in Sri Lanka: International Implications."

Both speakers were members of the panel of judges of the People's Tribunal on Sri Lanka. Organizers said some video evidence will be presented at both events.
