A British MP on Jan 12 called on her government to play a leading role in the upcoming United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) session, slamming demolition of Mullivaikkal memorial by Sri Lankan forces.

While delivering speech during a Global Britain Debate in UK Parliament, Siobhain McDonagh, Labour MP for Mitcham and Morden, referred to the demolition of the Mullivaikkal memorial at Jaffna University and described it as "an act that completely undermines the process of truth, justice and accountability."

The MP urged the UK government to ensure that a new resolution is agreed upon at the UNHRC session in March.
