Foreign judges accompany Lankan judges to allay Tamils’ apprehension: Sampanthan

Tamil National Alliance Leader R.Sampanthan has observed that foreign judges are sought to accompany Lankan judges at the proposed trials in order to allay the apprehension among the Tamil people whether justice will be delivered.

Speaking to the media, he explained that Tamils justifiably fear that justice will not be delivered in case only Sri Lankan judges hear the trials. They fear that it would be prejudicial to them.

Presence of foreign judges will not be prejudicial to the country and country’s independence.
