Winners are never tried for war crimes – Palitha Kohona, Sri Lankan Permanent Representative to UN

“If you look at the history of war crimes there isn’t one instance where a winner of a war has been tried before a Tribunal. They have always been set up for losers. And if you were to take winners then the start would have to be taken elsewhere. Sri Lanka did not drop atom bombs or destroy entire cities during the war,” said, Sri Lanka’s foreign secretary and newly appointed permanent representative to the UN, Palitha Kohona in an interview to Daily Mirror on 20th Aug 2009.
Palitha Kohana is an Australian Citizen and formerly working for Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, Australia.
