Foreign Minister States that Sri Lanka Remains Open to Foreign Participation in Special War Crimes Court


The Sri Lankan Foreign Minister, Mangala Samaraweera, has said that the country is still open to foreign involvement in a special court that is to be formed in order to examine allegations that war crimes were committed during Sri Lanka’s civil war that lasted for 26 years.

Samaraweera has said that the “contours” of a special court should be clear in the next five to six months, after discussions with other parties, including representatives of the ethnic Tamil minority.

“We will look into all those options and come up with a court which is not only credible but also acceptable to the victims of the war,” Samaraweera told the United States Institute for Peace.
