CHENNAI: PMK leader S. Ramadoss on Sunday urged the Central government not to support the Sri Lankan government when it would face charges of violating humanitarian law at a special session of the U.N. Human Rights Council (HRC) in Geneva.

He said Chief Minister M. Karunanidhi should prevail upon the Centre to take a firm decision. The special session, scheduled to take place on May 26, is being convened at the request of 17 of the 47 members of the HRC, including Canada, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Slovakia, Slovenia, Switzerland and Britain. “The Sri Lankan government should pay the price for the killing of Tamils in the name of fighting a war against LTTE. India should give its support to the move to penalise the Sri Lankan government,” he added.
