India and Sri Lanka’s war crimes

“India should not subject itself again to be charged as supporting genocide by Sri Lanka.”

- BJP national executive member L. Ganesan, on reports India is supportive of Sri Lanka's attack on the UN expert panel's report. See The Hindu’s news brief here.

"I believe that [the] Indians were aware of the civilian casualties that were happening [in 2009], because they had pretty good intelligence inside [Sri Lanka's] siege zone.

"If foreign governments knew what was going on this latter stage of the war and continued to supply arms, then I think it is a matter worthy of investigations in those countries."

Gordon Weiss, former UN spokesperson in Sri Lanka. See his comments to BBC Sinhala service here

We need your support

Sri Lanka is one of the most dangerous places in the world to be a journalist. Tamil journalists are particularly at threat, with at least 41 media workers known to have been killed by the Sri Lankan state or its paramilitaries during and after the armed conflict.

Despite the risks, our team on the ground remain committed to providing detailed and accurate reporting of developments in the Tamil homeland, across the island and around the world, as well as providing expert analysis and insight from the Tamil point of view
