Unlock the Camps in Sri Lanka

September 1, 2009

Unlockthecamps

Some of you may have seen the shocking footage, shown on Channel 4 recently, which appears to show the execution of Tamils by the Sri Lankan Army.

I have written to the Government, urging them to call for an independent, international investigation. If it is confirmed that this is a war crime, then international action must be taken.

I also urged the Government to demand the closure of the IDP camps for thousands of Tamils, and immediate access for aid agencies and the media.

I recently attended the launch of the British Tamils Forum’s campaign, ‘Unlock the Concentration Camps in Sri Lanka’. The campaign aims to close the camps and allow innocent Tamil civilians to return home.

Please do write to the Government too and add your voice to this campaign.
