Tamil National Alliance (TNA) objects President Maithripala Sirisena’s statement in an interview with the BBC, foreign judges and prosecutors should not be involved in investigation into allegations of human rights violations.

MP of TNA, M.A. Sumanthiran expressed the party’s objecting views at a press conference.

MP states that Sri Lanka has to adhere to pre-agreed commitments with International bodies to receive their assistance in making justice to war time abuses. He further says that Head of the State’s statement breaches such commitments “to implement the provisions of the resolution, in a manner that its objectives are shared by the people and all stakeholders in the country, for their benefit"- as agreed by a resolution.

Human Rights Watch said the Sri Lankan government should fulfill its commitments to the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) by ensuring that foreign judges and prosecutors play a significant role in the mandated accountability mechanism for wartime abuses.
