send via whatsapp
An international conference on Tamils, co-hosted by a British Parliamentary Group, will kick off in London tomorrow during which political leaders would discuss alleged rights violations by Sri Lankan Army in the last phase of the civil war.

CPI National Secretary D Raja and chief of CPI's Tamil Nadu unit D Pandian will be taking part in the four-day conference in London that is being hosted by All Parliamentary Group for Tamils in collaboration with British Tamils Forum.

The conference, which will see leaders representing Tamil community from across the globe, will call for justice through an international independent mechanism for truth and accountability with regard to the civil war in Sri Lanka.

Raja, who left for London today, will highlight the "callous" attitude of Sri Lankan government in addressing the concerns raised by international community with regard to alleged violations of human rights.

"The United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva passed a resolution in March censuring Sri Lanka for human rights violations. Several months have passed, but there is no action on the ground by the Sri Lankan Government," he said.

Raja said on behalf of his party, he would emphasise that Sri Lanka should take "credible action" against violators of human rights.
