A former Norwegian minister who once played a key role in brokering peace between the Sri Lankan government and LTTE called for an international investigation into alleged human rights abuses in Sri Lanka.

 

Erik Solheim, a former minister of International Development, told Xinhua in an email that the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay, who is scheduled to visit Sri Lanka this month, should pass on a strong message to the Sri Lankan government.

 

Sri Lanka has seen Solheim as a strong supporter of the LTTE.
