NPC reiterates Tamil call for international judges, demands UN-mediated political settlement

The Northern Provincial Council (NPC) has urged the international community to ensure that international judges, prosecutors and investigators are included in any accountability mechanism.

In a historic resolution passed on Tuesday, the NPC has also called upon the international community to ensure that in the event that Sri Lanka fails to fulfill its obligations under UNHRC Resolution 30/1, an international judicial mechanism is set up to deliver justice to Tamils.

Further, the NPC has urged the UN to mediate a political settlement that recognises the North and East as the Tamil homeland.
