On Sri Lanka, Ban Hasn’t Begun Review of UN Acts, Ranil on July 5

It was April when UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said he was accepting one recommendation of Panel of Experts he belated appointed into war crimes in Sri Lanka, that the UN review its own actions in the final stages of the conflict.

  The UN actions include leaving Kilinochchi, not releasing casualty figures, and having Ban’s chief of staff Vijay Nambiar pass assurances that international law would be complied with to surrenderees, who were then killed.

  Now that is July, Inner City Press on Friday asked Ban’s acting deputy spokesperson Farhan Haq, yes or no, if this review committed to in April has begun.
