Availability for Comment - Sri Lanka’s appalling Human Rights record exposed- again

The Australian Tamil Congress welcomes the UN’s call for a fully independent and impartial inquiry into allegations of Human Rights abuses in Sri Lanka.

"The Sri Lankan Government must be held to account by the international community for the atrocities that have taken place"

Dr Sam Pari – Spokesperson for the Australian Tamil Congress (ATC)

ATC spokesperson Dr Sam Pari interviewed by Lanka News Web

As a human rights and Tamil rights activists where do you place your self, in the context of present political situation in SL?  Before that how do you characterize the political situ in SL today. Any personal experiences re developing situ?

In the current political situation two men who could be indicted for war crimes have drawn swords at each other while clamouring for the highest position in the State. From the Tamils’ point of view there is absolutely no choice between the two. It is extremely difficult to say as to who could be worse. In this context, we would like to acknowledge the principle-based position adopted by Dr. Vikramabahu Karunaratne, with a programme recognising the Tamil homeland in the North and East, its right to self-determination and autonomy as solution for the Tamil National question. His policies on economy also confirm that he intends to do good for all peoples of the island. The Sri Lankan public and media should give as much importance to him as the other protagonists.
