We Will Continue To Push For Full & Independent Inquiry On Sri Lanka’s War Crimes: Ed Miliband

Ed Miliband has vowed to continue to push for a full, independent, international inquiry into the alleged war crimes and crimes against humanity committed in Sri Lanka.

In a video message for “Tamil New Year”, the leader of the Labour Party reiterated his support for accountability in Sri Lanka and promised that he would advocate for the Tamil cause – “we, in the Labour Party, know our responsibility to the Tamil community.”

Miliband took the opportunity to thank the Tamil people for the immense contribution they had made to British public life and said that the Labour Party will always be a friend to the Tamil community.

Transcript of Ed Miliband’s message:

“I want to wish everyone in the Tamil community a Happy New Year.

And I want to take the opportunity to thank the Tamil community for the incredible contribution you make to our country, across every walk of life.

The Labour Party has always been a friend of the Tamil community and will continue to be so.

And we will continue to push for the full and independent, international investigation into alleged war crimes in Sri Lanka.

It is something I raised with President Sirisena when I met him. We will continue to push this forward and continue to advocate for your cause.

We, in the Labour Party, know our responsibility to the Tamil community.

So let me reiterate my wishes for a Happy New Year and I look forward to working with the Tamil community, in the months and years ahead.”
