War Crimes in Sri Lanka That Wait For Justice

On Saturday 4th June – Kevin McBride and Peter Murnane attended a forum in Pakuranga, Auckland, led by the Tamil Community. It discussed the recent United Nations Report on war crimes committed in the closing months of the terrible civil war that was so destructive to Sri Lanka.

Although the military fighting came to an end in mid-2009, and war crimes were committed on both sides, the severe historic oppression of the Tamil people continues, and is now taking the form of “ethnic cleansing” and genocide organized by the Sri Lankan Government.

 Several New Zealand Members of Parliament were present at the Forum.
