TGTE Adopts Resolution Calling For Prosecution Of Sri Lankan Military And Political Leaders

The Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam has unanimously adopted the resolution passed by an ‘Assembly of Persons Concerned with the Genocide of the People of Tamil Eelam’ that called for the prosecution of Sri Lankan “military and political actors responsible for genocide and crimes against humanity.”

gota-and-mahindaAt the ceremonial first sitting of its second Parliament in the State of New Jersey, USA on 8 December 2013, the TGTE parliament accepted in full the resolution passed earlier on the 29 September, 2013 in London, England by this  specially constituted ‘Assembly of Persons’ who in their “plan of action” declared among other that “accountability mechanisms” should be established so that these military and political actors are prosecuted, “under all available means in international law.”

The resolution under Clause 13 stipulated the “accountability mechanisms” that should be pursued:

“We request that the United Nations Security Council refer the high level political and military leaders of Sri Lanka to the International Criminal Court for prosecution. If that does not prove feasible, we request that the United Nations General Assembly establish an International Criminal Tribunal for Sri Lanka pursuant to its power under Article 22 of the United Nations Charter that is modeled upon the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda.”

The resolution under clause 14 further called for “the people of Tamil Nadu to bring pressure on the Government of India to sue Sri Lanka before the International Court of Justice for genocide under the Genocide Convention of 1948.”

Some of the legal luminaries and eminent persons present endorsing the resolution passed in the London Conference were Geoffrey Robertson QC, Prof. Francis Boyle, David Matas,  S V Kirupaharan, Robert Evans,  Ali Beydou  and Prof Sornarajah.

The Resolution in full accepted and adopted  by the TGTE parliament reads as follows:

ASSEMBLY OF PERSONS CONCERNED WITH THE GENOCIDE OF THE PEOPLE OF TAMIL EELAM BY THE GOVERNMENT OF SRI LANKA

RESOLUTION ON A PLAN OF ACTION

We constitute ourselves today, the 29th September, 2013, as an Assembly of Persons Concerned with the Genocide of the People of Tamil  Eelam by the Government of Sri Lanka, its armed forces and its political leaders and resolve on the following plan of action:

1. As an Assembly, we declare that accountability mechanisms should be established so that the military and political actors responsible for genocide and crimes against humanity are prosecuted under all available means in international law.

2. The UN Office of Legal Affairs has advised the Secretary General that he had the power to establish a Commission of Inquiry into the state atrocities in Sri Lanka. We request the Secretary-General to establish such a Commission of Inquiry as there has been no progress in this matter for four years.

3. We declare that this genocide continues so long as the Tamils taken into custody are unaccounted for by the Government of Sri Lanka.

4. We declare that the genocide and crimes against humanity continue as long as the Sri Lankan army is in occupation of the lands of the Tamil people. Such occupation destroys the identity of the Tamil people and is intended to intimidate them into subjection. The army must be withdrawn and the occupation ended.

5. We declare that the lands occupied by the Sir Lankan army be returned to their owners, in accordance with principles relating to the property of internationally displaced persons. All moveable and immovable property must be returned.

6. We declare that, upon return,  compensation be paid to the legal owners for the period of dispossession of their lands by the Government of Sri Lanka.

7. We declare that military personnel and others in illegal possession of such lands are personally liable for such compensation and that their civil liability will be established before courts of other states if they travel to any other country of the Tamil diaspora.

8. We demand that the Government of Sri Lanka restores destroyed property in the NorthEast to its previous state.

9. We demand that all land transferred to foreign investors or to local investors be transferred to their original owners. If they were public lands, they must be handed back to the local governments for public use.  All such transfers will be challenged in the courts of the home states of the foreign investors on the ground that they hold illegally seized lands.

10. We demand that, women, especially the war widows, are protected from rape and gender based violence by the occupying forces. We declare that such harassment constitutes genocide in accordance with standard definitions of genocide.

11. We will explore every legal technique available to secure redress for the people of the NorthEast of Sri Lanka.

12. We recommend the establishment of a legal committee to pursue the issue of accountability for the genocide of the Tamils of Tamil Eelam, the rape and sexual harassment of women and the grabbing of their lands. The committee must explore the interconnectedness of these events with a view to establishing genocide.

13. We request that the United Nations Security Council refer the high level political and military leaders of Sri Lanka to the International Criminal Court for prosecution. If that does not prove feasible, we request that the United Nations General Assembly establish an International Criminal Tribunal for Sri Lanka pursuant to its power under Article 22 of the United Nations Charter that is modeled upon the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda.

14. We ask the people of Tamil Nadu to bring pressure on the Government of India to sue Sri Lanka before the International Court of Justice for genocide under the Genocide Convention, 1948.

15. We call upon the Tamil Diaspora and people of good faith and goodwill all over the world to engage in acts of peaceful resistance against Sri Lanka in the spirit of Mahatma Gandhi’s satyagraha.

16. We recommend that an umbrella group of all people threatened with genocide is formed in London to pursue the achievement of strong laws against genocide and support each other in their pursuit of self determination.

    I would like to rephrase this a bit “We declare that the genocide and crimes against humanity continue as long as the Mara regime is in occupation of the lands of the Sri Lankan people. Such occupation destroys the identity of the Sri Lankan people and is intended to intimidate them into subjection. The regime must be withdrawn and the occupation ended.”……………………………………………………… We are all the same going on a path to death, Do not worry about some fucking homeland for who you where born as, you came out of your daddys nut sack and I came out of mine.. Speak what ever language you want and be “proud” of it in this lifetime………..Why do people need to classify themselves????? I still don’t understand…. These two cockroaches in the picture above are no Buddhist philosophy believers and because of their dad they are Sinhalese.. They only want power in this lifetime, they DO NOT realize we only know one thing, and that is that we are already dead and just figuring out a way to get there.. I say FUCK the people in Sri Lanka who are Tamils, Muslims, Catholics and anyone else I forgot to mention!!! Burgers, Moors, whatever… Go [Edited out]… Then come out with your bullshit racist classification.. Stick with one rule, don’t fuck with me and I won’t fuck with you.. Lets all die together peacefully.. It can’t be that hard can it?????????????????????????????????

          It was Fallujah in South Asia under test by all(all world powers) being in it. How far can they destroy evidence and go just for `Gooo`ta- it’s hard. However, they would go after him on individual cases like journalist because even the Sinhalese are victims and his past deeds slaughtering the Sinhalese.
          The TGTE is fuckshit low class revenge as if we are not aware of the biggest partition the no killed, the 3 wars subsequently and the cold war. Defense budget for each nation would rise at least to 30-40%. New Zealand has done away with its own defence and handed it to Australia because it is cash strapped.

      kris ….. “These idots when they are going to stop this bullshit resolutions against SL” …………. When you stop being stupid…… “good for the terorist survival”……… The more minorities the terrorist state kills the longer it stays in power the more commissions the ruling clan makes out of its miserable stupid people…. Therefore clan needs TGTE and Tamilnadu jokers for its own prolonged survival………. Probably the clan may be maintaining a back channel to TGTE, Tamil Diaspora and TN. ……..

      There weren’t any war against terrorism. India trained boys to capture Lanka. When India thought the time is good, it invaded Lanka. As LTTE did know what the Indians motive was, they had their own counter plan too. So, they did not go to fool around like Vijithamuni Rohana de Silva. This time their solid action disappointed India. They looked for a bunch of Modayas to turn them around against LTTE, who saved country from Indian. This worked very well with the Royal Family too. Because they too looking for a chance to capture Lanka from Tamils and Sinhalese. Right after war, Royal Family said they fought India’s war. India said SLG fought their war. Here two parties both wanted to capture Sri Lanka. India lost due LTTE. Latter it joined with Royal family and helped Royal Family capture the country. Tamils did know they lost. But here again the Sri Lankan fools were let alone to believe that they had fought a war against terrorism and won it. Yet the Kings won’t be able to hold on for long time the country they captured from Tamils and Sinhalese. The reason is, India is making ready for a second round. This time LTTE has been wiped out and there is not going to be any resistance. This time Vijithamuni Rohana de Silva also won’t be able to make any funny jokes with Indians. As far as Tamils (TGTE) are concerned any redress for them has to come from UN. They know, there may be some delays, but it will come for sure.

        “|”They know, there may be some delays, but it will come for sure.”|”

        They will have to go piggyback on the very Sinhalese for that due to their own war crimes and the stench its causing to neighbors.

        India was hoodwinked into training so please don’t tell us No.

        No government in an independent India is possible with out UP and Bihar 85,54 seats (total 543+2)NaMo’s Gujarat 26; Maharashtra 48;West Bengal 42;Madhya Pradesh 40; Tamil Nadu 39;.Out of the elective seats, 530 are from 25 States and 13 are from seven Union Territories.

        Tamil Nadu has always been neglected so don’t take India for `grunted`.
        You cannot kill, insult and demand power from the world especially from the authority.truth is not the authority.

    Great. TGTE should now adopt yet another resolution. This time against themselves. Request international bodies to investigate monkeys of TGTE for terror financing, propaganda & arms procurement over 30 years. On behalf of the now defeated & defunct LTTE. World’s worst terror outfit. Throw in aiding and justifying the kidnapping of poverty stricken & traumatized Tamil children to serve as canon fodder in VP’s stinking frontline bunkers in Vanni. Don’t even bother to mention human shileds & shooting Tamil escapees in the back. All these horrific crimes in the name of Tamil people. To carve out an ethnically cleansed, Tamil only enclave in multi-ethnic Sri Lanka. The perverted form of Tamil ethno-nationalism TGTE champions. Cheers!

      So you want World to investigate crimes against Tamil civilians by LTTE but not crimes against Tamils by GOSL. –Since LTTE is defunct and the surviving members are in the Rajapaksa government, why not go after Rajapaksa and charge them for harbouring LTTE.

        Palmsquirrell, All crimes, be they by LTTE or by GOSL, against Tamils or Sinhalese, should be looked into and dealt with by GOSL. Internationals are welcome should we seek help. Not otherwise. We are a sovereign nation. Please note Justice we seek must be unique to the Sri Lankan situation. Remember, after WWII nobody in the allied nations were punished. Despite overwhelming civilian casualties on the German side. In South Africa Apartheid was ended in a negotiated settlement. In Sri Lanka the ruthless terrorists were militarily vanquished. Sri Lanka’s situation is unique and must be dealt with as such. TGTE is not interested Justice for anyone. You believe them, if you want to. They are engaged in a lofty vengence project to dismember Sri Lanka. Cheers!

          If you are against International community involvement then you are in favor of GOSL getting away with war crimes, because GOSL will never incriminate itself. Even if Rajapaksa are deposed, whatever government takes their place will never ever indict GOSL Armed Forces . –Either you support the perpertrators of war crimes being held accountable or you are not.–If you are opposed to International Community involvement then you are against the guilty being held responsible.

            GOSL must take full responsibilty for this so called International onslaught against Sri Lanka. Rajapassa has done too little, too late. They have no credibility in matters of Justice. Judicairy is corrupted and politicised to serve The Clan. Not victims. International Ealamistas are drawing full benefits of this gross misrule. Victims of violent crimes in Sri Lanka are left to suffer their misery without Justice. Sri Lanka as a nation will end up paying the price one day. When that day dawns, The Clan will escape to a safe loaction with the loot. But, we will have to start from scratch. Sri Lankan Spring, Where are you? Cheers!

When will enlightenment come to these amphibians rather deep in their wells and so damn oblivious to others’ suffering? Just think — what would Buddha do!

      @Ben Hurling

      The whole world knows what the LTTE did and now they are no more. Most or some people in the world know what the SL armed forces did…and so do most Sri Lankans…but the Sri Lankans want only what the LTTE did highlighted while they want what the SL armed forces did to be swept under the carpet. What the SL armed forces did to the JVP and Sinhala youth was swept under the carpet because the Sinhalese quickly forget and most of them care only about cattle being killed on poya days. But what happened to Tamil civilians cannot be hidden…it’s only a matter of time. Take a look at these.

        Percy Jilmart, I am all for lifting carpets. All crimes by GOSL and non-state actors must be exposed in detail. Since Independence. There are many. Including JVP & LTTE related violence. Then we can start the process of forgiving and reconciliation. In good faith. To make sure we will never return to that kind of misery again. Difference is you favour involvement of International hypocrites, while I believe in the strength of Sri Lankans to see this through. Internationals are welcome to give us a helping hand.

    Is this TGTE recognise by any country and given these Ministers, Prime Minister any Diplomatic recognition ?
    It is good to go for the truth. Rudrakumaran, the TGTE PM and others including KP and each and every Tamil who contributed to fund the LTTE is/ was responsible for all the deaths of Sinhalese, Tamils and others for the last 30 years. Not for the support given to Prabakaran by these Tamil groups, Sri Lankan Forces should not have gone to eradicate the terrorist organization band in many countries including USA and UK, where the action plans were hatched. The two governments should take immediate action to BAN this TGTE as it is part of the LTTE.
    If Tamils in the North is feeling intimidated what about 42 PC of the Tamil population in the Western Province alone. What this TGTE should try to achieve for the Tamils in the North is not what they need to impose on them, but security to live happily with a roof over their heads. If TGTE can concentrate the atrocities committed by the Two Man team of Rajapaksas during the last Four 4 years, then they can prove Rajapaksa brothers are trying to annihilate the Sinhalese, Tamils and Muslims including others, than trying to look for co- lateral damages and deaths committed by LTTE and the Forces, where most Tamils are party to the annihilation by contributing funds to buy weapons and other equipments to kill and maim around 100,000 people of all nationalities. According to Criminal Law the person who committed the crime as well as the people who supported to commit that crime are guilty of the same crime.
    If Rudrakumaran and the other Ministers ( JOCKERS) can think properly and QC Robertson May explained to them that the death of 6632 Soldiers and Officers during the last stage of the LTTE annihilation should be answered by those responsible to armed the LTTE. If in Military terms we assume the Fire power the Army had and for them to loose 6632 service personals, there should be another lot of casualties should occurred from the other side. Taking into consideration the ill trained child and other terrorist members of the LTTE killed that vast amount of service personals then the number of LTTE soldiers should be around 30,000 .
    So without talking about WAR crimes try to take up the post LTTE war casualties and all other atrocities committed by the Rajapaksa with imputing their brutal power to subdued the people of all denominations. In my opinion TGTE is only a name sake organisation collecting money from the poor Tamils who believe on them that they are their saviours. But if they can help the CM Wigneswaran and the people in the North to live a peaceful and happy life then they can prove themselves as a educated organization.

      Before asking to punish TGTE, can you punish UNP because Premadasa armed and funded LTTE and punish SLFP for funding LTTE to get elected, I assume these two are bigger contribution than TGTE’s one. Dont be hypocrite just because they are your people? And alos dont forget to hang yourself because your elected government did this, quite contrary to any other government in the world.

      You people support Indian to kill Tamils, and then support LTTE to kill indians and support rajapakse to kill LTTE, then support someone xyz to kill rajapakse, it is you people who are at fault need big time punishment

How is that? You punished whom in 2009? If you are capable your MOD should punish India for its act, oh wait a minute is n’t gota going secretly to beg India, oh pity sach, do one think go to indian emabssy in colombo and demand action against India for arming LTTE, then come,ask me? are you handicapped all these years?

    The Rajapakse Brothers will ignore this development only at their own peril. Demands for action against the Rajapakses is growing the world
    over. The ostrich-like response they take will soon prove counter-productive. The only way out is to restore to the Tamils their
    long-denied rights now legally enumerated by a duly elected Chief Minister of the NPC. This will, in some degree, mitigate the strident
    action the UNHRC and the world are now in the process of putting forth.
    The space for the Rajapakses to run and hide is fastly narrowing with every passing day.

    “each and every Tamil who contributed to fund the LTTE is/was responsible for all the deaths of Sinhalese, Tamils and others for the last 30 years” says reader Upasiri de Silva. Is this Ruhunuputra aware the greatest contribution to VP’s coffers came from the Rajapakses in a sum said to be around Rs.800 million – to change the course of an election that should have rightly gone the way of the pusillimanous Ranil W. Any doubts can be clarified with Mangala S and Tiran A – who facilitated the deal.

      Varathan if you like to know exactly who funded the LTTE I can give these informations. At the initial stages it was the UNP government and Paskaralingam with the permission of Premadasa gave the funds via contracts manipulation. Later Premadsa gave funds and weapons to get the Indian Army out after allowing Karuna to kill 600 odd Police personals. After that the Tamils world over contributed, some because they feared for the lives of their loved once back home, and others as promised for helping them to get to green pastures. Anyhow it is a foregone conclusion if the TGTE wants one party to be prosecuted for these crimes, then the other party, now supposed to be KP and the TGTE may have to answer to the majority Tamil people to come to a conclusion.
      Rajapaksas gave money to LTTE which was a contribution for the Tsunami Aid from WB, as there was no other way to give the money. LTTE never constructed any housing for those displaced from Tsunami, but used them to buy weapons and other artillery. WB is also a party for the annihilation of most Tamils kept as body shields by Prabakaran if we go to fine details of the so called war crimes.
      Best to concentrate post 2009 May activities and request some relief for the displaced Tamils still looking to get a roof over their heads and a civilian administration in the NPC.

    I as a Tamil would love to see these war criminals be charged in the international court of law. But these losers from the TGTE is making a mockery of the suffering the Tamils have gone through in the hands of the Rajapuka brothers, LTTE and their military goons. Sitting in these foreign lands, sending their children to great universities, making good money and on Fridays have a shot of whiskey and talk this kind of nonsense and stir up some crap in Lanka for the suffering Tamils. Oh yeah, this is going to sell soon.

        Remember Canada has the highest number of SL Tamils after Sri lanka.

        Then what is this TGTE? For whose interest?

        Will CT do an investigation on this matter instead of publishing reports of a non-existing tea party organization?

    So if TGTE has adopted a resolution to prosecute Sri Lankan “military and political actors, That’s dame good ! they should start with their Stateless Prime Minister Rudrakumaran who has been their legal advicer to the LTTE, then they should deal with Nedyavan in Norway and Adle Balasingham in London.
    After those prosecutions they should start dealing with the International Political actors like Solheim, Jaylalitha, Haper etc.and after all of them are brought to courts and justice is done to the peace loving people in Sri Lanka, and if the members of the TGTE are still living by then (due to old age) THEY CAN TRY TO PROSECUTE THE SL MILITARY !

    SL Military represent Sinhalese only.
    SL Government represent Sinhalese only.
    SL President represent Sinhalese interest only.
    SL constitution represent Sinhalese interest only.
    SL President, its government, its military violated human rights, abused human rights and misused national resources and committed crimes against humanity.
    Don’t worry about TGTE resolution. As a Sri Lankan, explain who was responsible for the murder of Lasantha and other journalists in the day light?
    Who ordered the Weliweriya shooting of a innocent civilian?
    Who was responsible for the attack on Muslim mosque’s and business places?
    Why was the former military commander and former chief justice were taken away from their positions? Do you agree justice was done and the investigation was impartial?

    Tribunal support this resolution

    Sri Lanka guilty of genocide against Tamils with UK, US complicity: PPT rules
    Print 11 DECEMBER 2013 BY RAMANAN VEERASINGHAM

    In a landmark judgement that sends shocking waves to many international busy bodies, a very eminent panel of international judges of the Rome-based Permanent Peoples’ Tribunal (PPT) Tuesday unanimously ruled “Sri Lanka guilty of the crime of genocide against the Eelam Tamil people”, while the US and UK were found to be guilty of complicity to this crime, a PPT statement said Tuesday.

    A 11-member high-profile judges, consisting of experts in genocide studies, former UN officials, experts in international law and renowned peace and human rights activists, gave this ruling after a two-day tribunal hearing between December 7 and10 in Bremen, Germany.

    “The Second Session of the Peoples’ Tribunal on Sri Lanka concluded today in Bremen, Germany, with the presentation of its verdict. The panel of eleven judges unanimously found Sri Lanka guilty of the crime of genocide against the Eelam Tamil people, and that this crime continues today,” the PPT statement said Tuesday.

    “The UK and USA were found to be guilty of complicity in the crime of genocide, including –complicity by procuring means, such as weapons, instruments or any other means, used to commit genocide, with the accomplice knowing that such means would be used for such a purpose; complicity by knowingly aiding or abetting a perpetrator of a genocide in the planning or enabling acts,” it said.

    The PPT however, withheld their decision on India’s complicity to this crime, pending examination of further evidence.

    More than 30 direct eye-witnesses and experts testified in support of the Prosecution’s case, providing evidence on various alleged crimes that could be determined to constitute the crime of genocide, as well as on the legal and historical background and the charges of complicity.

    “The Tribunal specified that the victims are in this case the Eelam Tamils as a national group. The Tribunal found that genocide against the Eelam Tamil group has not yet achieved the total destruction of their identity. The genocidal coordinated plan of actions reached its climax on May 2009, but it is clear that the Sri Lanka Government project to erase the Eelam Tamil identity, corroborated by the above mentioned conduct, shows that genocide is a process and that process is ongoing,” the PPT statement said.

    “Recognizing that the Sri Lankan state alone did not have the capacity to achieve their genocidal ambitions, and given the evidence presented, the Tribunal believes that the UK, the USA and India are guilty of complicity in genocide. However, given time constraints the Tribunal decided to withhold its decision pending the consideration of additional evidence as to the possibility that India, as well as other States, are indeed guilty of complicity in the crime of genocide against the Eelam Tamils,” the PPT statement said.

    One of the Co-Chairs of the PPT Panel of judges, Daniel Feierstein, is Director of the Centre for Genocide Studies at the Universidad Nacional de Tres de Febrero, Professor in the Faculty of Genocide at the University of Buenos Aires. He has been elected as the president of the ‘International Association of Genocide Scholars’.

    While the other Co-Chairs, Denis Halliday, is a former Assistant Secretary General of the UN when Kofi Annan was the Secretary General. He resigned from his 34 year old career in the UN in protest of the economic sanctions imposed on Iraq by the Security Council.

    This is the second such high-profile session conducted by the PPT on Sri Lanka. The first phase of the Tribunal, held in January 2010 in Dublin, was the first ever international effort to investigate the allegations of war crimes and crimes against humanity committed during the final stages of the protracted conflict in Sri Lanka.

    At the end of the first session of the PTT session on Sri Lanka, the panel of judges had determined, that ‘War Crimes’ and ‘Crimes against Humanity’ had taken place on the Tamil population during the final months of the war in Sri Lanka. It also held that “pressure from the UK and USA governments contributed to the breakdown of 2002 peace process between the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) and the Government of Sri Lanka, precipitating the war”.

    Following is the full statement issued by General Secretary of the PPT Gianni Tognoni on Tuesday:

    The Peoples’ Tribunal on Sri Lanka ‐ Session II

    7th ‐ 10th December 2013 Bremen, Germany

    Panel of Judges presents verdict finding Sri Lanka guilty of the crime of genocide against the Eelam Tamil people; the UK and USA were found to be guilty of complicity, while the Judges withheld their decision on India’s complicity pending examination of further evidence.

    The Second Session of the Peoples’ Tribunal on Sri Lanka concluded today in Bremen, Germany, with the presentation of its verdict. The panel of eleven judges unanimously found Sri Lanka guilty of the crime of genocide against the Eelam Tamil people, and that this crime continues today.

    The Tribunal found that genocide against the Eelam Tamil group has not yet achieved the total destruction of their identity. The genocidal coordinated plan of actions reached its climax on May 2009, but it is clear that the Sri Lanka Government project to erase the Eelam Tamil identity, corroborated by the above mentioned conduct, shows that genocide is a process and that process is ongoing. The genocidal strategy changed once the perpetrators gained control of the territory. The killings are being transformed into other forms of conduct, but the intention to destroy the group and its identity remains and continues, through causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the Eelam Tamil group.

    The Tribunal considers that the proofs established, beyond any reasonable doubt that the following acts were committed by the Government of Sri Lanka

    (a) Killing members of the group, which includes massacres, indiscriminate shelling, the strategy of herding civilians into so‐called “No Fire Zones” for the purpose of massive killings, targeted assassinations of outspoken Eelam Tamil civil leaders who were capable of articulating the Sri Lankan genocide project to the outside world.

    (b) Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group, including acts of torture, inhumane or degrading treatment, sexual violence including rape, interrogations combined with beatings, threats of death, and harm that damages health or causes disfigurement or injury.

    (c) Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part, including expulsions of the victims from their homes, * seizures of private lands, * declaring vast areas as military High Security Zone (HSZ) to facilitate the military acquisition of Tamil land.

    Further, the Tribunal considered evidence related to

    (d) Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group including forced sterilization and coerced contraception of Eelam Tamil women. Further investigation is required on the extent of this practice in other regions before a determination is made on whether these could be considered genocidal acts.

    The UK and USA were found to be guilty of complicity in the crime of genocide, including
    – complicity by procuring means, such as weapons, instruments or any other means, used to commit genocide, with the accomplice knowing that such means would be used for such a purpose;
    – complicity by knowingly aiding or abetting a perpetrator of a genocide in the planning or enabling acts thereof;

    Recognizing that the Sri Lankan state alone did not have the capacity to achieve their genocidal ambitions, and given the evidence presented, the Tribunal believes that the UK, the USA and India are guilty of complicity in genocide. However, given time constraints the Tribunal decided to withhold its decision pending the consideration of additional evidence as to the possibility that India, as well as other States, are indeed guilty of complicity in the crime of genocide against the Eelam Tamils.

    More than 30 direct eye‐witnesses and experts testified in support of the Prosecution’s case, providing evidence on various alleged crimes that could be determined to constitute the crime of genocide, as well as on the legal and historical background and the charges of complicity.

    The proceedings of the Second Session were broadcast through live streaming on the Internet and will be made available on the web site http://ptsrilanka.org/

    This Second Session in Bremen was convened in response to the determination by the First Session, held in January 2010 in Dublin, Ireland, that War Crimes and Crimes against Humanity had taken place on the Tamil population during the final months of the war in Sri Lanka in early 2009, and that further investigation be undertaken regarding the question of genocide.

    These two sessions of the Permanent Peoples’ Tribunal on Sri Lanka have been established in response to a submission made by the International Human Rights Association Bremen (IMRV) and the Irish Forum for Peace in Sri Lanka (IFPSL). As in the First Session, here in Bremen a panel of judges consisting of experts in genocide studies, former UN officials, experts in international law and renowned peace and human rights activists.
