Adopt International Criminal Resolution in UN, Jaffna Municipal Council passes a resolution unanimously

The Jaffna Municipal Council adopted a resolution calling to grant jurisdiction for the Internal Criminal Court over Sri Lankan affair or adopt a resolution for forming a Special International Criminal Investigation Panel  in Security Council. It is notable that while the National Organizer for TNPF and an MMC, Visvalingam Manivannan proposed this resolution, the TNA with the conjunction of UNP, SLFP, seconded the motion which was adopted unanimously.

Whereas the GOSL has gone back on its obligations accepted by them in Resolution 30/01 , has failed to take action to implement it with the time frame granted, it has been now a reality that the governments which came to power after the war did not  had the minimum willingness to implement the resolution 30/01, and as the UNHRC is a  body without the power to take International Criminal Case actions, it is moved that jurisdiction be granted to  the Internal Criminal Court over Sri Lankan affair or resolution be adopted for forming a Special International Criminal Investigation Panel in Security Council, said Manivannan while tabling the motion.

The motion was adopted unanimously.
