The United States today noted the need for credible justice processes when addressing incidents related to the war.
Responding to comments made at the 30th session of the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva today by the Special Rapporteur on the Promotion of Truth, Justice, Reparation and Guarantees of Non-Recurrence, Pablo de Greiff, the US said that it is in the government’s interest to establish justice processes that have the confidence of the international community.
“We express deep appreciation for Mr. de Greiff’s observations from his visits to Sri Lanka and Burundi. We also welcome the chance to engage the Working Group on Enforced or Involuntary Disappearances. We thank the Special Rapporteur for your comments on Sri Lanka, and agree that that it is in the government’s interest to establish justice processes that have the confidence of the international community and will be credible to all the affected communities in Sri Lanka,” Michele Roulbet from the US delegation at today’s session said.
