By Matthew Russell Lee
UNITED NATIONS, September 9 — The talk was of war crimes at the UN on September 9, and those of Sri Lanka came up in discussion and on a color map. The President of the International Criminal Court’s Assembly of State Parties noted that the UN Security Council has not referred Sri Lanka to the ICC.
The Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court Luis Moreno-Ocampo, who has acknowledged receiving communications about Sri Lanka, spoke afterwards to the Press. On top of his file folder was a map, depicting by colors which countries have joined the ICC, which countries are being looked at (yellow dots), where prosecutions are ongoing (four red dots, all in Africa) and where Crimes Have Been Committed, noted with a green dot.
There was a green dot on Sri Lanka, another on Zimbabwe and one on Myanmar.
