An organisation representing the international Tamil diaspora is taking legal action against William Hague over the Foreign Office's failure to confront a senior Sri Lankan diplomat accused of war crimes.

 

The Global Tamil Forum has instructed a law firm to bring a judicial review against the foreign secretary for his refusal to declare Major General Prasanna Silva – now the military attache to the Sri Lankan High Commission in London – persona non grata.

 

The forum alleges that Major General Prasanna Silva, who has lived in the UK since 2010, was involved in systematic attacks on Tamil civilians between January and May 2009 when he was a senior commander in the Sri Lankan army.

 

However, the British Foreign Office said it had not yet received any correspondence relating to legal action by the GTF.
