Investigate War Crimes in Sri Lanka

    1. Petition by

      Amnesty International USA

One year after the end of the conflict in Sri Lanka, thousands of victims of human rights violations committed by both government forces and the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) are being denied justice, truth and reparations. The complete failure of the Sri Lankan government to genuinely address this impunity means that the United Nations must step in and conduct an independent international investigation as a first step towards international justice.

The truth must be established about the extent of violations that occurred in the final stages of the war, when the government prohibited independent monitoring and reporting by the United Nations and other observers.

Stand together and urge the government of Sri Lanka to put an end to these violations by signing this petition that will be delivered to the Secretary-General of the United Nations, Ban Ki-moon.
