Tamil activists, on the second day of the 'Walk for Justice', met with representatives of the European Union and Members of the European Parliament, and urged them to push for an independent, international investigation at the 19th session of the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC).

The EU representatives felt the demands were both "reasonable" and "timely", and pledged to create discussion regarding passing a resolution calling for such an investigation at the EU parliament, said activists.

The 'Walk for Justice' activists began their journey Sunday at the European Parliament in Brussels, demanding accountability and justice for victims of war crimes and crimes against humanity in the North-East of Sri Lanka.
