ACF demands answers over 2006 Muttur massacre

The Paris-based Action Contre La Faim (Action Against Hunger, ACF) has demanded answers related to the murder of 17 aid workers in 2006. On August fourth, 2006, 17 employees of ACF were executed in their office in Muttur.

The Government at the time blamed the LTTE for the massacre while the LTTE blamed the military.

At the UN Human Rights Council last week ACF said that there was no progress to be seen on the investigations over the murder.

ACF called for the establishment of special courts to deal with such crimes.

The humanitarian agency also called on the UN Human Rights Council to exercise universal jurisdiction on Sri Lanka to push for accountability. (Colombo Gazette)
