Tamils for Obama to Supreme Court: Can the U.S. Arrest Rajapaksa?

(PRWEB) August 31, 2010

Can the U.S. arrest Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa as he travels through this country to visit the United Nations this fall?

Tamils for Obama asked that question in a letter to Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts.

"The United States has arrested and deported accused war criminals in the past," explained a spokesman for the Tamil American group. "Our country arrested accused Nazis decades after the crimes they were supposed to have committed took place, so this is not unprecedented.

"We guess that this is different because the accusations come from international civilian organizations--the International Crisis Group, Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, and so forth--rather than courts of law. They say that there is plenty of evidence that Sri Lankan government forces, which were ultimately commanded by President Rajapaksa, committed what would probably be considered war crimes.
