Yasmin Sooka, co-author of the UN Panel of Experts report into mass atrocities in Sri Lanka and the 
'An Unfinished War: Torture and Sexual Violence in Sri Lanka 2009—2014'report, called on Tuesday for international action to stop ongoing sexual violence by the security security forces against Tamils, which she stressed was "not random" but "systematic".

In an interview with the Tamil Guardian during the global summit on 'End Sexual Violence in Conflict' taking place in London this week, Ms Sooka stressed that five years after the war, sexual violence "is still happening in Sri Lanka and we have to draw attention to it so we can put a stop to it".
