Fonseka revelations mandate independent probe into UN's role, says Boyle

[TamilNet, Thursday, 24 December 2009, 01:11 GMT]
Former Sri Lanka Army Commander, Sarath Fonseka's revelations of Gotabhaya Rajapakse ordering executions of surrendering LTTE leaders and their families, and UN chief of Staff Vijay Nambiar's reported role in the deadly surrenders "require a formal Investigation of the entire role played by the United Nations Organization and its Officials throughout the course of this latest irruption of the GOSL genocide against the Tamils starting in January of 2009 until today," said Professor Francis Boyle, professor of international law at the University of Illinois. "The U.N. Secretary General has the power to order and publish such an investigation," Boyle added.

"The previous U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan so ordered two separate investigations concerning the roles played by the United Nations during the genocides in Rwanda and Srebrenica, respectively," Boyle noted.

"The U.N. Rwanda Report was conducted by a body of credible, professional and outside independent experts and was thus first-rate.

"By comparison, the U.N. Srebrenica Report was specifically designed to be an in-house cover-up by the U.N. Bureaucracy of their and its Complicity in the genocidal massacre of 8000 Bosnian Muslims at Srebrenica by Serbia, and thus was not worth the paper it was written on," Boyle cautioned of the lack of credibility in UN's internal investigations.

"So the world must demand that the U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon appoint an investigative committee of outside, independent experts to examine the role played by the United Nations Organization during the GOSL's genocidal massacre of about 30,000 Tamils on the Vanni Beaches and the continued incarceration of about 250,000 Tamils in GOSL concentration camps," Boyle said in a note sent to TamilNet.
