Sri Lanka In UK Election Manifesto again.

Conservative party has included accountability for war crimes and crimes against humanity issues related to Sri Lank in its election Manifesto.

On pages 76-77 of the Conservative Party’s election manifesto it states:

“We will …. promote reconciliation and human rights in Sri Lanka, including through supporting the UN investigation into war crimes, which the Prime Minister was instrumental in securing following his historic visit to Jaffna.”

Correction: An earlier version of this story incorrectly said “”For the first time ever, outside Tamil Nadu, a political party, importantly in the West has included accountability for war crimes and crimes against humanity issues related to Sri Lank in its election Manifesto.” But Sri Lanka was mentioned in 2010 Labour Party Manifesto too.
