    The Rajapakse regime must allow international independent Human Rights organizations to collect details and investigate crimes.

    Sri Lankan Human Rights has no credibility and they may be under government pressure to cover up crimes and write a pro-government and propaganda decisions.

    When the International Community comes to senes, they will invade Sri Lanka and it may be too late as already hundred of thousands of innocent Tamils are brutalized and perished due the Rajapakse regime thuggary.
