Action Against Hunger (ACF) and human rights initiative SPEAK will submit a report to the United Nations Human Rights Council (HRC) condemning the obstructionism and failures of the Sri Lankan authorities in advance of the HRC’s review of Sri Lanka’s human rights practices in October 2012, the Action Against Hunger website reported.
In August 2006, 17 aid workers working for ACF were killed in the town of Muttur.
Several legal proceedings were initiated , but ACF claims that owing to the failure of these procedures the perpetrators of the massacre are still to be identified.
The report is to highlight that the search for the truth has been a casualty of obstructionism, the intrusion of politics into the judicial process, a lack of transparency and massive errors during the two years of investigations.
