British Foreign Secretary William Hague says that there is no change in the UK government’s decision on the time frame given for Sri Lanka to hold an independent investigation on the alleged human rights violations during the war.

Secretary William Hague told British parliament today that Britain will ask an international investigation if the Sri Lankan government fails to hold the said rights violations investigation before the deadline.

British Prime Minister David Cameron asked the Sri Lankan Government to hold the investigation on the rights violation before next March when he was in the island last month to participate in the CHOGM.

Reminding the British Premier’s ultimatum for Sri Lanka, British Foreign Secretary said that Sri Lankan Government has not yet entered to the path of a process to hold a rights violations investigation.

Meanwhile American Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asian Affairs Nisha Biswal said that Sri Lanka should show a rapid progress in its accountability process.

She told during an interview with the Associated Press that the International patience could diminish unless Sri Lanka takes rapid actions towards accountability process.
