Clinton to be urged to bring Sri Lankan war criminals to ICC

hillary-clintonA US based Tamil diaspora group says it will urge US Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton to bring alleged Sri Lankan war criminals to the International Criminal Court (ICC).

Tamils for Clinton, which is supporting Clinton at the Presidential elections next month, noted that so far Tamils have not seen substantial results in Sri Lanka after the latest UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) resolution.


“Currently, about half a million displaced Tamil people live in Northeast of Sri Lanka. There are fifty thousand orphans and ninety thousand war widows who are still waiting for accountability and justice seven years after the end of conflict. Transitional justice processes and mechanisms are a critical component of the United Nations framework for strengthening the rule of law; Tamils should not accept anything less than that,” Tamils for Clinton said.


A Tamils for Clinton spokesman said that at the 34th session of the UNHRC in March 2017 they will ask the new US administration to pass a resolution to ask the UN Security Council to refer the situation in Sri Lanka to the ICC, to ensure accountability for the serious abuses committed by Sri Lanka in the 2009 conflict.

Tamils for Clinton is a political activist group comprised of Americans with the majority being Tamil Americans. They believe that over 145,000 Tamil civilians living in Sri Lanka were massacred during the last weeks of the Sri Lankan ethnic war. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. Hilary supporters are real idiots. Terrorism will grow not only in USA all over the world if Hilary is the president. So dishonest. She is power hungry. Trump is the person who can help the countries with all the terrorist problems. That the main issue the whole world is facing today.

  2. Diaspora is the RUMP of the proscribed LTTE terrorist organisation all over the world. Mrs Clinton In her previous bid, about 2008 for US presidential candidacy, diaspora donated substantial amounts of dollars for her political propaganda activities. She had to return the money received from above diaspora because they were on the list of proscribed terrorist groups.This event was the result of
    responsible Sri Lankans mainly living overseas. They brought this to the attention of the Clinton campers, through the legal body overseeing donations to politicians. Still, LTTE remains proscribed.

    It is no secret that politicians know the ways and means to get their monies even from the devil himself.
    I have doubts about whether my comments appear in your columns as your paper is partial towards the LTTE.

  3. War criminals are already dead. We only have officers of an army of a democratically elected government. They led an exemplary humanitarian operation that crushed terrorism for the fist time in the world history. We should expect Clinton to reward SL army for helping eliminate the “world’s most ruthless terrorist organization.”

  4. HAHAHAH. After the recent wiki leak emails, these idiots actually believe that she will go through with their promises. Trump has this election in the bag and will never bow down to terrorism. The LTTE/GTF diaspora is a joke

      • Trump is actually the best thing to happen for americans since ronald regan but ur dummy who can easily be fooled. Calling rajapaksa the trump of america is more compliment, but sadly he isnt. Donald J Trump is just too good.

        • There is no way that USA and Hillary Clinton cannot said to Sri Lankan to fought against Tamil Terrorist led LTTE and TNA wrong ?
          In fact ICC is not for Sri Lankan leaders that is for Tamil Terrorist war Criminals of LTTE’s.

          US global politics has to keep in their mind that the small nation like Sri Lankan are fought against Tamil Terrorist not confined their own soil.

          This is international mission has been undertaken by Our leaders of risk of life, that fought against Tamil terrorist as ell as other Terrorism is world is another phonemmona of the politics of democracy. .

          How can be that wrong? We are not against Tamils people but resistance against Tamil Terrorist is are right of protected democracy and sovereignty of all Sri Lankan.

          Hillary Clinton should know that Federalist of TNA is new form of Tamil violence outfit is operated in Island ,We cannot relax Tamil Terrorist is threaten to democracy of Island>

          How can Country leaders who has fought against Tamil Terrorist of LTTE goes ICC on what grounds?

          In such case most of UAS President has to be ICC? That is including Hillary Clinton.!

          Hillary Clinton has to chose between Democracy and Terrorism.. There is no middle path in between of that ongoing Terrorism that totally undermined Democracy in present context of World of Politics.
