No foreign judges in local human rights investigation

President Maithripala Sirisena today asserted that there will not be foreign judges in the local investigations on human rights abuses.

The President expressed this view during a meeting of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) Central Committee and Executive Committee today.

He told the SLFP the UN Human Rights Council had proposed that foreign judges be invited to Sri Lanka to be involved in the judicial process to investigate human rights abuses related to the war.

The President however said that he had made it clear that foreign judges will not be invited to Sri Lanka. (Colombo Gazette)

  1. “President Maithripala Sirisena today asserted that there will not be foreign judges in the local investigations on human rights abuses.”

    Like MR he should have completed the sentence, “if I do that I will be in jail too as my hands are not clean either.”

  2. Let’s have international judges in Sri Lanka; once we done the investigation on West’s human rights abuses in Afghan and Iraq by Chinese and Russian judges ;–))))))

    • For this to happen the international community should believe that the justice system in Afghan and Iraq is not credible and has no integrity.

      What a pathetic state the Sri Lankan justice has fallen into when Afghan, Iraq and some African countries that had their own investigation are cheered while Sri Lanka is jeered.
