US envoy to Sri Lanka asserts accountability a must over Floyd killing

The Ambassador said that the US Justice Department has announced a full criminal investigation into the circumstances of Floyd’s death.

She also noted that since the end of the US civil war more than 150 years ago, the US has confronted a legacy of racism.

Nonetheless, she said Americans continue, despite setbacks, to build the “more perfect union” envisioned by the country’s founders and to ensure the laws’ full protection applies to all. (Colombo Gazette)
