People’s Tribunal on Sri Lanka, Session 3, Berlin

Was the EU's terror listing of the LTTE, at the instigation of the US, the political trigger for the genocidal war against the Eelam Tamils?
 
In May 2006 – the EU the main international backer of the peace process in Sri Lanka – violated the ‘parity of esteem’ accorded to the negotiating parties by banning one side - the LTTE. The third session of the tribunal will examine whether there was systematic pressure exerted by the US and the UK to undermine the peace process – eventually leading to the EU banning the LTTE. The third session will meticulously examine the facts to establish not only if this happened, but if so, what the US and the UK’s motives would have been. 
 
As we see an open confrontation taking place between the two sides of the geo-political divide - as to who controls this strategically important island – the Eelam Tamils in the homeland and in the Diaspora will be concerned with the deliberations at this tribunal. And, as the world in witnessing again the failure of negotiations resulting in a terrible war, the Berlin Tribunal will not only be of concern to the Eelam Tamils, but to all those concerned in peace through negotiations.

The third session of the tribunal – like the Dublin (https://pptsrilanka.org/) and Bremen (https://www.ptsrilanka.org/)) sessions - will take place in Berlin under the aegis of the ‘Permeant People’s Tribunal’ (http://permanentpeoplestribunal.org )- 22, 23, 24 April 2022.
 
As with the previous sessions, the organisers will be the ‘Internationaler Menschenrechtsverein Bremen’ (https://humanrights.de/) in collaboration with the ‘Irish Forum for Peace in Sri Lanka’ – Dublin (https://ifpsl.org/)
