Colombo makes mockery of UN endorsed domestic mechanism - Boyle

[TamilNet, Thursday, 14 January 2016, 23:52 GMT]
Noting Sri Lanka Cabinet spokesperson Rajitha Senaratne's statements that there was no deadline to complete the accountability process on the war, that his Government is in talks with the United Nations with regards to the accountability process, and that the process will be a domestic process and not a “hybrid process” as proposed by the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Professor Boyle, an expert in International Law, and who teaches at University of Illinois, College of Law, said that by these words "GOSL has publicly stated that it will continue its Crimes against Humanity against the Eelam Tamils. This makes an absolute and total mockery of the so-called “domestic mechanism” that was endorsed by the UN Human Rights Council."

Full text of Prof. Boyle's comment to TamilNet follows:

"When the Enforced Disappearances (EDs) of human beings is either widespread or systematic, it becomes a Crime Against Humanity in violation of the Rome Statute for the International Criminal Court and customary international criminal law.

"In the case of the GOSL genocide against the Eelam Tamils, EDs are both widespread and systematic and therefore Crimes against Humanity too. EDs are also ongoing criminal offenses in violation of international criminal law until the fates of the disappeared persons are accounted for.

"So by means of this statement that there is “no deadline” on the accountability process for the EDd persons, the GOSL has defiantly indicated to the entire world that it will continue its ongoing international criminal activity of enforced disappearances of human beings against the Eelam Tamils, which are Crimes against Humanity.

"In other words, the GOSL has publicly stated that it will continue its Crimes against Humanity against the Eelam Tamils. This makes an absolute and total mockery of the so-called “domestic mechanism” that was endorsed by the UN Human Rights Council.

"Any international expert who participates in the genocidal GOSL’s “domestic mechanism” will be aiding and abetting the GOSL’s EDs Crimes against Humanity against the Eelam Tamils.

"Every Tamil in the world must take note of these so-called international experts who get involved in the genocidal GOSL’s “domestic mechanism," Professor Boyle said.
