ICLB Submissions to the OHCHR Investigation on Sri Lanka – The LTTE and the Legal Response to Terrorism and Crimes Committed by the LTTE



In September and October 2014, the International Criminal Law Bureau (ICLB) submitted a series of papers to the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) in relation to its investigation on Sri Lanka (OISL). The first in the series concerned the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) and addressed the nature of the organization, its leadership, political affiliations and the heinous crimes committed by the LTTE in the State of Sri Lanka up until 2009. The second paper addressed the rights and obligations of the State of Sri Lanka in seeking to protect its population from terrorism and crimes perpetrated by the LTTE during a thirty-year terrorist campaign and the non-international armed conflict of Eelam War IV (from 2006-2009). The OHCHR is due to issue its report next month.
