French Charity Action Centre le Faim has welcomed the UN Human Rights Council resolution on Sri Lanka which paves the way for an inquiry into alleged human rights abuses, including the killing of 17 ACF aid workers, in Muttur, Trincomalee, eight years ago.

Reuters quoted the Advocacy Director of ACF, Serge Breysse, as saying that the passage of the resolution was a great victory for the bereaved families and a huge relief for everyone working at ACF.

Breysse added, “We have campaigned for justice for seven years. An international and independent inquiry into the deaths of our colleagues can finally be implemented and a message sent that the killing of civillians and humanitarian workers will not go unpunished.”
