Sri Lanka calls UN report on war crimes allegations ‘unacceptable’

The Sri Lankan government cried foul Tuesday after a U.N. panel said it has found credible allegations of war crimes and crimes against humanity committed by both sides during the final stages of the country’s civil war, CNN reports. A government spokesman called the panel’s report “unacceptable,” while Sri Lanka’s External Affairs Ministry said the report is “fundamentally flawed” and based on “patently biased material.” The Tamil National Alliance, the main Tamil opposition party in parliament, once dubbed as a “proxy” to Tamil Tiger rebels during the conflict, said it concurs with the findings. In the U.N. report released Monday, the three-member panel recommends the government of Sri Lanka immediately conduct an investigation.
