Tamilnet (10/12) – US Senators call for Independent International Investigations

Seventeen United States Senators, in a letter sent to the US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, urged her to “call for an independent international investigation into the allegations of gross human rights violations that occurred during the country’s 25-year civil war.” Coinciding with the week following release of WikiLeaks cable which revealed the Colombo-based US diplomats’ view that “responsibility for many alleged crimes rests with the country’s senior civilian and military leadership, including President Rajapaksa and his brothers and opposition candidate General Fonseka,” the letter follows the August letter sent by 58 members of Congress urging the Obama administration to push for an independent international investigation into alleged war crimes that occurred during Sri Lanka’s civil war.
