Vote to Lanka: Human Rights Watch hails India

Human Rights Watch hailed India`s decision to vote against Sri Lanka at the Human Rights Council meeting in Geneva over a "war crimes" resolution.



New Delhi: Human Rights Watch on Monday hailed India`s decision to vote against Sri Lanka at the Human Rights Council meeting in Geneva over a "war crimes" resolution.
"The Indian government has done the right thing by analyzing each situation separately instead of a knee-jerk response against a country-specific resolution," the US-based body said in a statement.
"The Sri Lanka resolution is a positive step towards encouraging a credible domestic effort in ensuring accountability," the group`s South Asia director Meenakshi Ganguly said.

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh announced in parliament that India intended to vote in favour of a US-sponsored resolution denouncing Sri Lanka for "war crimes" against civilians when the Tamil Tigers were crushed.
