July 11, 2011 - The Human Rights Watch (HRW) yesterday pointed out the absurdity in the US taking up accountability issues in Sudan, Libya and Sri Lanka, while shielding senior US officials responsible for war crimes.
"The US is right to call for justice when serious international crimes are committed in places like Darfur, Libya, and Sri Lanka, but there should be no double standards," HRW said. "When the US government shields its own officials from investigation and prosecution, it makes it easier for others to dismiss global efforts to bring violators of serious crimes to justice," HRW’s Kenneth Roth, executive director said in a statement posted on its website (HRW.org) yesterday.
Senior Sri Lankan government officials told The Island that those gunning for Sri Lanka on the human rights front should make their position public on HRW’s accusation directed at the Obama administration. The US recently warned Sri Lanka of dire consequences unless the government investigated war crime allegations.
The HRW statement captioned ’Investigate Bush, other top official for torture’ with a strap-line ‘Inquiry into two deaths in CIA custody insufficient’ was released in Washington DC. read more>>>
