UN has no comments on video footage of alleged crimes by SL
It is critical to address accountability in Sri Lanka through a genuine and comprehensive national process, the UN Secretary General’s office.
Speaking at a daily briefing and in response to a question by a journalist regarding the recent photos of Prabhakaran’s son’s alleged execution and more video footage of alleged war crimes, Spokesman to the UN Secretary General Martin Nesirky stated that they are aware of the video footage but do not have any specific comment on it.
“This is an internal task force looking at how recommendations will be carried out within the UN. It’s not to do with looking into the actual events that took place in Sri Lanka. It is learning the lessons from them, which is what the second report was about. The Secretary-General has consistently underlined the critical importance of addressing accountability in Sri Lanka through a genuine and comprehensive national process and achieving national reconciliation. We are obviously aware of the video footage and the reports about that video footage, but I don’t have any specific comment on that, beyond what I have just said”, he stated. (Courtesy: Ada Derana)

UN and its SG are tools of the US Administration. So their pronouncements have no value. UN is selective in berating smaller nations on so-called war crimes and crimes against humanity. But they haven’t the backbone to hold to task USA, Britain and their allies for serious war crimes and crimes against humanity which are on-going since the time of the Vietnam war atrocities. UN needs to be purified of its corruption for its obvious bias against SL.
This so-called ‘execution’ of VP’s younger son is old propaganda trotted out just before the UNHRC hearing for a new resolution brought against SL VP’s wife and two sons were killed as they refused to surrender and died fighting to the last man.
When Osama was killed by Obama the US killing unit sent by Obama did not arrest Osama, even though he was unarmed. He was shot dead point blank by a US marine. His wife and another woman were also shot dead. They were also unarmed. What was their crime? Is it because they were wives of Osama? Isn’t this a war crime committed by the US marine and US President Obama?

They call it collateral damage.
But the bigger Crime is the Invasion of Iraq for Oil, when the UN did not Approve it, based on lied of WMD.
That is what happens when you a re superpower. You get away with it. Saddam Hussein killed his opponents, thousands of them. LTTE killed too, collateral and non-collateral damage. The Sri Lanka Govt, killed too, mostly collateral damage.
