The United Nations announced last week that it would launch a mission to investigate war crimes in Sri Lanka. The body’s Human Rights Council approved a mandate to collect evidence saying that "trends emerging over the past year, which represent a clear early warning sign of a deteriorating situation of human rights in Sri Lanka."
DW’s Tim Sebastian spoke with the Sri Lankan Secretary to the Foreign Ministry, Jayanath Colombage, on UN’s upcoming investigation. The secretary insisted that his country’s government takes the issue seriously: "No one else is [more] interested in human rights than Sri Lankans and Sri Lanka."
