Swiss MPs call for international accountability on Tamil Genocide Remembrance Day

Swiss MPs have called for Sri Lanka to be held internationally accountable for the crimes it committed during the Tamil genocide in Mullivaikkal 15 years go. 

Fabian Molina MP, of the Social Democratic Party said that "Switzerland must do more to ensure that these serious crimes are dealt with internationally."  Speaking at a remembrance event in Zurich, Molina said that the Tamil people have the right to self-determination.  




Claudia Friedl, another Social Democratic Party MP said that "Switzerland and its partners must set an example so that violations of international law never go unpunished."






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
