Protests against UN resolution in Europe and Sri Lanka
UN Sources from Geneva say that copies of the revised American backed UN draft resolution against Sri Lanka will be circulated among the participating members of the Human Rights Commission sessions tomorrow.
Revisions were made to the previous draft resolution after the Tamil Diaspora and several other influential groups demanded the inclusion of new course of action against Sri Lanka.
The new draft resolution has stressed the need to have an international investigation against Sri Lanka.
