Ban Wants International Participation in Judicial Mechanism


UN Secretary General Ban ki-moon wants international participation in the judicial mechanism when investigating the war in Sri Lanka.

Ban ki-moon’s spokesman Stéphane Dujarric said that the Secretary‑General understands that the discussions in Sri Lanka on the transitional justice mechanism, including the judicial component, are ongoing.

“Broad‑based national consultations are about to kick off, and they will help inform the modalities of the mechanisms.  The Secretary‑General also recalls that the Human Rights Council resolution on Sri Lanka, cosponsored by the current Government, affirms the importance of a credible justice process and international participation in the judicial mechanism,” Stéphane Dujarric said.

 He said the UN Secretary General remains hopeful that the Sri Lankan Government stands by its commitments and fully implements the resolution. (Colombo Gazette)
