Yasmin Sooka’sInternational Truth and Justice Project’s (ITJP) Executive Director, Yasmin Sooka is bias. Sooka is biased towards the Tamil Diaspora sympathising with the International LTTE network. ITJP’s main ambition and aspiration is to breakup Sri Lanka and malign its war heroes who ended terrorism in 2009. It is indisputable that the LTTE terrorists held 300,00 innocent civilians as a human shield at the last stages of the internal conflict in Sri Lanka.
Despite several attempts to collect bias evidence only from terrorist fronts, members and supporters to implicate the military, there is overwhelming evidence that the security forces liberated the innocent civilians. After attempting to misguide the UNHRC failed, LTTE fronts and ITJP relentlessly campaign to tarnish the image and reputation of the security forces.
Sri Lanka armed forces has not violated any Geneva Convention in specific Convention four. It was a rescue operation only and for that enough evidence is available. This includes several publications, videos and other evidence including a book by the former LTTE women wing leader Thamilini. Sri Lanka is not a signature to ICC and no warrant has been issued by the ICC Court.
