India should sue Sri Lanka in ICJ for massacre of 2000 Tamils - Prof. Boyle

[TamilNet, Sunday, 10 May 2009, 14:00 GMT]
"In light of the latest atrocity by the Government of Sri Lanka that overnight exterminated 2000 Tamils, at a minimum the Government of India must sue Sri Lanka for violating the 1948 Genocide Convention before the International Court of Justice in The Hague, request an Emergency Hearing by the World Court, and win an Order of Provisional Measures of Protection --the international equivalent of a temporary restraining order-- against the GOSL to cease and desist from committing all acts of genocide against the Tamils," said Professor Boyle, professor of International Law at the University of Illinois College of Law, in a note sent to TamilNet Sunday. "I stand ready to file this World Court Lawsuit immediately upon receipt of the appropriate authorization from the Government of India," Boyle further said.

"This ICJ Order would be immediately transmitted to the United Nations Security Council for enforcement under the terms of the United Nations Charter and thus would place the GOSL genocide against the Tamils on the formal agenda of the Security Council for action despite the wishes of some of its Permanent Members such as Russia and China," Boyle said.

"In the event these two Permanent Members were to veto enforcement measures by the Security Council against the GOSL under U.N. Charter Chapter VII, then the entire matter can be turned over to the U.N. General Assembly for action pursuant to the terms of the Uniting for Peace Resolution (1950) in order to terminate the ongoing GOSL genocide against the Tamils," Boyle added.

"I stand ready to file this World Court Lawsuit immediately upon receipt of the appropriate authorization from the Government of India.

"The GOSL genocide against the Tamils has now exceeded the horrors of Srebrenica. India must act now before Vanni becomes another Rwanda," Professor Boyle warned the International community.
