UN inaction responsible for ‘grease devil’ phenomenon, NZ Tamils tell Ban

[TamilNet, Saturday, 10 September 2011, 00:16 GMT]
In a letter routed through the Mayor of Auckland to UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon visiting New Zealand, the Tamil Action Front in New Zealand on Monday urged the UNSG to stop the post-war disaster the Eezham Tamils have been going through. “[The UN panel] report was released in April 2011. It is September now. There is no indication that you have done justice to the report – not even sent a copy to the UN Human Rights Council for discussion and action. Your inaction has emboldened Sri Lanka to order the Security Forces to menacingly intrude into homes of the peace loving Tamil and Muslim peoples of the traditional Tamil speaking areas – the North and East of Sri Lanka, the Front said in its letter.

“Women are sexually targeted and when men intervene their limbs are broken and hospitalized,” the NZ Tamils wrote to the UNSG.

The UNSG is concerned about women and children, but not Tamil women and children in the island of Sri Lanka. Why the Tamils of the island are treated differently, the Forum asked.
