British MP, James Berry, said in his Tamil New Year message that much swifter progress is needed towards the full implementation of UNHRC resolution 30/1.
The current chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group for Tamils travelled to the Northern Province this month and visited the Nanthikadal lagoon in Mullaitivu.
“The APPG for Tamils will continue to keep human rights on the agenda in the UK and abroad,” Mr Berry said. “We will continue to demand that the Sri Lankan government fulfils its obligations to the international community, including finally setting up a justice mechanism with an impartial tribunal involving foreign judges to deal with human rights abuses during the civil war.”
