Lawyers Ask Centre To Back U.S. Resolution

By SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT

The Women Lawyers’ Association on Friday staged a demonstration in front of the Madras High Court urging the Centre to support the US-backed resolution at the United Nations Human Rights Council against Sri Lanka for its atrocities against Tamils.

Led by its president D. Prasanna, the association on Thursday had adopted a resolution stating that the killings of Tamil women and children during the last stage of the war against the LTTE amounted to human rights violation. The Centre should back the resolution against Sri Lanka.

The Tamil Nadu Advocates Association, led by its president S. Prabakaran, at its special general body meeting urged India to support the resolution.

    Since lawyers deal with justice, please ask your Association to take action about the deaths of Sinhala and Muslim women killed by the LTTE for the past 30 years.

    More importantly, how does it feel? ( no embarrassment I hope) to allow and in this instance, basically beg from the US to allow your hulking big country with it’s 1 Billion people to be used as the brand new Yankee toy in the Sub continent.

    There is a demand for accountability and as Sri Lankan I support that demand. While America has lost its credibility as a result of all the human rights abuses perpetrated by the US army in places like Abu Gharib and Guantanamo and other parts of the world there is a system in place that holds these individuals responsible including proper systems of investigation and this is what we need in Sri Lanka. The government has to investigate and justice must be metered out even if it is to high ranking government ministers. As Sri Lankans we know what happened, and for the fear of a deterioration of an already bad situation I hope the government is dealt with strictly. I am a patriot and i don’t want to see my people being killed or their rights deprived by any government. Not a Sri Lankan one and not a foreign one.
