The future for Sri Lanka’s peace in proposed criminal tribunal

Community groups are viewing it as an opportunity to have the crimes recognised and to validate the experiences of victims and survivors. The Wire’s Kayla Dickeson reports.

The United Nations Human Rights chief is calling for a criminal tribunal in Sri Lanka to address war crimes and crimes against humanity committed in the civil war from 2002 to 2011. It will take the form of a special hybrid court between international and domestic prosecutors, different from other war trials that have seen an independent international tribunal.
