We don’t need to worry about what the Government says about the court mechanism for war crimes investigation. If the SL government does not cooperate in the implementation of what had been said in the resolution, UN should take action to deliver the benefits or results due to the affected people to them, said the Leader of the TNA and Leader of the opposition, Era Sampanthan.
He said so when asked to comment on the government leaders, especially, the foreign Minister Mangala Samaraweera saying that they will not constitute hybrid court mechanism.
He further said that, in a context where the Geneva sessions are in progress, the ministers of the government saying different opinions, we had our meeting in Vavuniya last week. There is no change in the decision taken there.
The Sri Lankan Government should implement fully the resolution of the UNHRC co-sponsored by SL government in 2015. The office of the UNHRC’s office should be established here to monitor and guide the implementation.
UN has the responsibility to obtain the benefits and results for the people affected by war, he said.
