Sri Lanka: US Senate Calls for Justice. UK and Australian MPs Also Back Accountability

(New York-HRW) - A US Senate resolution calling for an independent international mechanism for crimes by both sides during and after Sri Lanka's bloody civil war highlights growing international pressure for justice and accountability in Sri Lanka, Human Rights Watch said today.

The US Senate resolution, passed unanimously on March 1, 2011, follows similar calls by British and Australian parliamentarians.

A United Nations Panel of Experts, appointed by United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to advise him on possible accountability mechanisms in Sri Lanka, is finalizing its report.
