Denmark calls for independent international investigation on Sri Lanka

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 07 May 2013, 15:31 GMT]
In an official Parliamentary release on Friday, four major Danish political parties, including two parties of the ruling coalition, called “for the establishment of an independent international investigation into violations of international humanitarian law and human rights committed during the end of the civil war in Sri Lanka.” Welcoming the move as a positive step, the alternative political activists in the country of Eezham Tamils said that the call for international investigation would have been more meaningful had it come at the time of the US-tabled Geneva resolution undermining it.

The Danish statement is a follow-up of the conference “A forgotten conflict: Conference on Human Rights in Sri Lanka” held in the Denmark parliament on April 17 which saw the participation of Danish politicians from both the ruling left parties and the opposition party, academics, Eezham Tamil politicians from the island and the diaspora, Sinhala journalists, and other civil society activists.

Further pledging that Denmark would work with UN High Commissioner for Human Rights to continue to monitor the HR situation in Sri Lanka, they also resolved that Denmark would work to ensure that the Tamils who entered the custody of the Sri Lankan military in 2009 will be either released or produced in the Courts.

The statement was endorsed by the Social Democrats, the Social Liberal Party, the Red-Green Alliance and the Liberal Alliance.

Commenting further on the Danish move, Tamil political activists in the island said that any call which is not attending to the current plight, based on the recognition of the nation and territoriality of Eezham Tamils, will only pave way to another series of calls for post-mortem in future.

What is more urgent to Eezham Tamils today than belated investigations is arresting the on-going genocide –annihilation of the identity of the entire nation of Eezham Tamils, which is worse than the genocide in the war, they further said.
