Friends in deed?

The UN panel investigating Sri Lanka has finally begun its work. The ‘soft launch’ of its work has been noted elsewhere. Noteworthy for Tamils is that while the panel will look into “modalities, applicable international standards and comparative experience with regard to accountability processes” it is “not an investigative or fact-finding body”. How or what it is going to find if it cannot investigate or find facts is an open question.
