Lanka Agrees to Give Powers as Per 13A


COLOMBO: The UN rights council adopted a resolution on Thursday calling for international judges and lawyers to be part of a war crimes probe in Sri Lanka.

While the resolution included measures for rehabilitation and bringing perpetrators of war crimes to justice, it also spoke of the other side.

Not to forget the human rights violations perpetrated by the LTTE, the resolution said that accountability and reconciliation mechanisms should cover the doings of the LTTE also.

On the political plane, the resolution said that the Lankan government has agreed to devolve power to the provinces as per the 13th Amendment of the constitution.

Finally, the resolution requested the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights to give an oral update on the implementation of the resolution in the 32nd session, and a formal report, in the 34th session of the UNHRC.
