Members of the DMK’s Parliamentary committee on Friday met Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and urged him to sponsor a resolution at the upcoming session of the  United Nations Human Rights Commission (UNHRC) for an independent international enquiry into the war crimes during the Sri Lankan military’s offensive in 2009.

They also wanted the Centre to press for monitoring the civil liberty situation in the island nation in the resolution. The team of DMK MPs was led by TR Baalu, the party’s leader in the Lok Sabha. “We urge India to take the lead in introducing a resolution at the UNHRC session, set to begin on April 3,” read their submission to the PM.

The petition concentrated on the setting up of an international, independent inquiry into the war crimes in the final stages of the civil war and the continuing human rights violations, especially against those who oppose the SL government.
