'EU should consider justice, not investigations'

[TamilNet, Monday, 18 May 2009, 20:58 GMT]
The EU foreign ministers Monday called for the investigation of war crimes committed by ‘both sides’ in the killing of civilians in Sri Lanka. Responding to the news, TamilNet political commentator in Colombo said that what happened and what is happening in Sri Lanka is a unique case in contemporary human history in which the war crimes are ‘multilateral’, involving the UN, India, China and the Co-Chairs, involving even the EU. “The investigations have to be comprehensive sparing ‘nobody’, but where on earth to find such a neutral body, he asked. Rather than giving importance to post mortem in which the winners always have a better say, the EU has to urgently prevent further war crimes by immediately recognizing the Tamil independence and sovereignty in the island”, he said.

"An impartial investigation can be conducted only after de-proscribing the LTTE, and the EU should first do that."

“A bitter lesson the IC should have learnt through the events is the futility of attempting to resolve the conflict within the state of Sri Lanka. The Swedish foreign minister was reciting Bible to Satan in coming out with the usual and failed rhetoric of advising Colombo to build an inclusive society for all of its citizens”.

“Only a right political action recognizing the liberation of Tamils by the Co-Chairs could remedy the injustice done to the Tamils and could prevent further subjugation and crime on Tamils”, the commentator said adding that “it is justice that is needed and not another con of investigation”.
