War Crimes In Sri Lanka Have Been Ignored Too Long

“One of the worst atrocity crime stories of recent decades has barely registered in the world’s collective conscience. We remember and acknowledge the shame of Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur.

        Zaheer we are waiting for your Uncle’s Story the moment he is able to speak. How is Business? If you had anything to reveal of Batalanda, why did you not give evidence at the Commission of Inquiry? There is no point in harping now. Besides you have no point to harp on, as it is chopped?

    Not just at the last stage of the war but for over thirty years both sides fired at each other, and many many civilians died. When a victim is identified as civilian and has some evidence of perpetrators, I can understand the call for investigations.

    When movie shooters identify neither victims nor perpetrators is it not absurd to accuse one party?
