NPC member Ananthy Sasitharan says the Sri Lankan government’s plans to investigate disappearances as a farce. Speaking at the Jaffna Press Club on Thursday, Sasitharan said that the investigation commission was appointed to deceive the international community and to parade in Geneva at the UN Human Rights Council.
Sasitharan called for the direct intervention of the international community to ensure the safety of witnesses and relatives.
Saying that she had met Canadian MP Rathika Sitsabaiesan informally, Sasitharan said that she hoped Sitsabaeisan would relate the reality of the situation back to Canada. Ananthy Sasitharan also said that the world needed to be made aware that what occurred was Genocide and not just war crimes.
