UN should probe war crimes in Sri Lanka’

United Nations should probe the alleged war crimes in Sri Lanka, Second Deputy Chief Minister, Penang, Malaysia, P. Ramasamy, said in Coimbatore on Sunday.

Addressing journalists at the airport, he said that whether or nor India supported such a move, countries around the world must come forward to urge the UN to conduct a probe as that would bring out the truth.

Any internal investigation by Sri Lankan agencies was not acceptable. He also said the Sri Lankan government must return the lands taken away from Tamils.

Mr. Ramasamy is here to participate in the Marumalarchi Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam’s meeting at Palladam on September 15.
