On the 4th August 2006, in the midst of civil war, many civilians, including 17 aid workers of Action against Hunger (ACF), were killed in the town of Muttur, in Sri Lanka. The aid workers were executed in their office, brought to their knees and shot a bullet in the head. That is a war crime.
None of the three national investigations launched in Sri Lanka since 2006 came to an answer. The investigations were plagued with obstruction, interference of politics in the judiciary, lack of transparency and independence, and procedural irregularities.
ACF is asking for justice for this case of war crime by opening an international and independent UN investigation. They ask you to sign their petition. It will be handed over to the President of the Human Rights Council of the United Nations on 22nd of October.
The video got already over 170.000 views since September 26 on DailyMotion which is a lot for an action like this. I’m wonder why the organisation didn’t choose for YouTube also. The Google video platform has a global penetration in contrast to of DailyMotion.
