Basil Denies Backing War Crimes Claims

byAshanthi Warunasuriya

Sri Lanka Podu Jana Peramuna member and former Minister Basil Rajapaksa denied claims he had backed war crimes allegations during his recent visit to the North.

Rajapaksa said that he noted that if a crime had been committed by any soldier then the local legal system can look into it. He insisted that he never gave the impression that the military had committed war crimes. The former Minister said that an international court is not required to investigate any crimes in Sri Lanka.

      Ed. Caps is considered a shout, no need for that. The US commits far worse lets start with an International court investigation for the US first.

    Hitler never acknowledged that his forces committed war crimes.

  3. Basil, we are only interested with handful number of armed forces and of course two of your brothers on alleged war crimes. we are all aware most of the armed forces are good people. There is no possible war crimes against these people.

    The Intercept reported, “U.S. special operations airstrikes killed more than 200 people. Of those, only 35 were the intended targets. During one five-month period of the operation, according to the documents, nearly 90 percent of the people killed in airstrikes were not the intended targets.”

    None of the above are investigated by an international court.

    In a war against terrorism there is just collateral damage that does not require the violation of a countries sovereignty by an international court.
