“This is in continuation of my D.O. Letter to you written on 29.2.2012 wherein I had recalled the memorandum I presented to you on 14.6.2011 and my D.O. Letter dated 25.6.2011, drawing your attention to the resolution passed by the Tamil Nadu Legislative Assembly, urging the Government of India to take up the issue of war crimes with the United Nations and to declare those found guilty of war crimes against Sri Lankan Tamils as war criminals, and to initiate action by working with other Nations for imposition of an economic embargo on the Sri Lankan Government until the Sri Lankan Tamils are resettled and rehabilitated and are allowed to live with dignity, self respect and equal constitutional rights on par with the Sinhalese.
I had insisted that India should support the United States backed resolution and strongly condemn the Sri Lankan Government.
While there has been no response to my letter, much to my dismay, certain reports have appeared in the media relating to the Government of India’s stand on the United States backed resolution on accountability issues of the Sri Lankan civil war involving human rights violations to be moved for voting in the United Nation Human Rights Council in Geneva in March, 2012. The media reports mention that India is against the “Country Specific” resolutions and wants to take up discussions only under Universal Periodic Review as a routine matter. This means direct support to the Sri Lankan Government, which is most unfortunate and untenable.
I, therefore, reiterate my earlier requests and insist that India should support the United States backed resolution in the United Nation Human Rights Council and strongly condemn the Sri Lankan Government.
I await a positive response from you, Sir.”
