The Northern Province Council resolution calling for an international probe into the alleged war crimes committed during the military operation against the LTTE only reflected the feelings of the Tamil people in Northern Sri Lanka, Chief Minister of the province C.V. Wigneswaran said on Wednesday.
“If the Sri Lankan State did not commit war crimes, why should they resist an international probe? It is one thing to speak in terms of an international inquiry. At another level, it is about people who have lost their dear ones,” he told The Hindu on Wednesday.
“If someone is dead there is some closure, but when someone has disappeared and you wait, knowing nothing about them, it is traumatic.” (The Hindu)
