TN State Assembly passes resolution against US move to back domestic investigation

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 16 September 2015, 06:07 GMT]
In a key development, the State Assembly of Tamil Nadu unanimously passed a resolution, which was brought forward by Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Ms J Jayalalithaa on Wednesday, reiterating the call for international investigations on genocide and war crimes committed against Eezham Tamils in the island of Sri Lanka. Urging the Central Government of India to diplomatically block the move by the USA if it chooses to propose domestic investigations in favour of a domestic SL investigation, the chief minister of Tamil Nadu, in her introduction to the resolution, said the reported US move to support domestic investigation in Sri Lanka went against the concept of natural justice. The entire Tamil race stood firmly behind the call for international investigations as demanded by the Northern Provincial Council resolutions that were brought by CV Wigneswaran, the chief minister of NPC, she said.

Referring to the two milestone resolutions passed by the Northern Provincial Council in the island and the earlier resolutions passed by the TN State Assembly, Ms Jayalalithaa resolved that the Indian Government should propose a resolution in the UNHRC demanding international criminal investigations on the crime of genocide and war crimes committed against Tamils during the war in the island.

If USA adopts a position favourable to the Sri Lankan State, the Government of India should take necessary diplomatic actions, Ms. Jayalalithaa demanded in the resolution.

Ms Jayalalithaa also urged that an alternative resolution that could be brought forward by the Indian Government, also including the USA, should strengthen the line adopted by the resolutions passed by the Northern Provincial Council.
