Sri Lanka to export war crimes

“For now impunity is ruling the day.  So much so, that Sri Lanka is apparently seeking to export its brand of counter-insurgency to other countries.

“Will the Sri Lankan method of dealing with rebellion and insurgency catch on elsewhere? Or will the long arm of international justice give pause to would-be war criminals?

This is pretty much the defining question of international justice these days.”

- Mark Leon Goldberg. See his comment for UN Despatch 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
