US war crimes ambassador to visit the North-East

The US Ambassador on War Crimes and head of the Office of Global Criminal Justice at the US State Department, Stephen J Rapp, who is currently touring Sri Lanka, will visit the North-East on 8th January, to meet Northern Provincial Chief Minister CV Wigneswaran and other Tamil National Alliance (TNA) and civil society activists, reports the Daily Mail.

Rapp has, for the past two years, visited the island to assess the justice, accountability and reconciliation situation ahead of the United Nations Human Rights Council sessions in March, where the United States have led on two resolutions addressing such issues.

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
