The United Nations panel looking into war crimes during the final stages of the Sri Lankan conflict has called for submissions and correspondence from institutions and individuals.
The three-member panel was set up by UN secretary general Ban Ki-moon in June to advise him on the alleged violation of international human rights and humanitarian law as the war between Tamil separatists and government troops ended in May, 2009.
According to the UN website, spokesperson Farhan Haq told reporters on Wednesday that the panel, headed by former Indonesian attorney
general, Marzuki Darusman, had “circulated a notice
advising that it has commenced its work and providing an address where interested organisations, academic institutions or individuals can make written submissions or otherwise correspond with the panel.’’
According to the BBC report, the panel will receive submissions until December 15, 2010 and the submissions may be sent to email@example.com.
