Justice for Sri Lanka

A panel of experts appointed by the UN recently submitted a report confirming evidence of war crimes and other horrific abuses committed by both sides during the civil war in Sri Lanka during which tens of thousands of Sri Lankans were killed and many more brutalized. In a letter to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Freedom House joined prominent human rights groups to urge the United States to stress the importance of creating an independent accountability mechanism through which to bring the perpetrators of these crimes to justice.
