UN calls for a credible investigation
March 22, 2016 04:00 pm
The United Nations has yet again called for a credible investigation into alleged war crimes.
Farhan Haq, Deputy Spokesman for the UN Secretary General said that the UN has made clear what their guidelines are for what a credible investigation will entail. Haq made this in response to a question posed on a comment made by President Maithripala Sirisena that he will not agree to invite foreign judges to come to Sri Lanka to be part of the judicial process after investigating incidents related to the war.
“The Human Rights Council can evaluate for themselves how it’s going, but we want to make sure there is a credible investigation into this. And we have made clear what our guidelines are for what a credible investigation will entail and so we will continue to be in dialog to make sure it happens.”
