US President Donald Trump has been urged to intervene and ensure justice for Tamils in Sri Lanka.
The ‘Tamils for Trump’ organisation, in a letter to President Trump, wished him for the new year and urged him to work for international justice for the Tamil victims either through the ICC or International Tribunal for the war crimes committed by Sri Lankan officials during the ethnic war that killed over 145,000 Tamils.
“No Singhalese has ever been held accountable for any outrage against Tamils since the independence from the British. Justice and Truth are overdue, and we expect that 2018 is the year in which Tamils should get them. US acted rightfully and courageously in helping the victims in South Sudan to determine their own destiny. The same thing must be done for Tamil victims in the northeast of Sri Lanka, and we hope you will get it done,” the letter stated.
The Tamils for Trump said there is a need to help the Tamil victims in the North and East to determine their own destiny and reestablish Tamils’ independence.
“We hope that Tamils can return to that stability enjoyed before the colonization by the Europeans in the island of Sri Lanka,” Tamils for Trump said. (Colombo Gazette)
