Mangala briefs Hussein on progress made on accountability

Foreign Minister Mangala Samaraweera met the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein and briefed him on the progress made so far on accountability over incidents related to the war.

The meeting took place on the sidelines of the UN Human Rights Council session in Geneva, the Foreign Ministry said.


  1. The Global Law Experts are absolutely correct. ICC should be appointed to investigate the HR violations and war crimes.

    The judges in SL are almost Sinhalese, and racial in looking at events of crime brought before them. The Sinhala jury are the same. They studied not in English but in vernacular media. They cannot understand international covenants.

    The opposition leader wanted the people to know the truth. Broken agreements by the GSL is common than an exception. Cheating and telling lies by the media and the Sinhala leaders on Tamil issues is an acceptable norm by the Sinhalese.

    Buying time to evade Tamill issues is a norm in SL.

    In spite of these shortcomings, The president of SL, Maithripala Sirisena said last sunday at Polonnaruwa taht he will not allow foreign judges to participate in any inquiry in SL

    This act is an act of defiance against the UN and its resolution.

    The ICC should be appointed immediately to investigate and judge war crimes and genocide against Tamils.

  2. What does Mangala know to brief Hussein?
    When Managala roams the world at people’s expence and is never in the country.
