India’s DMK leader M Karunanidhi and PMK founder S. Ramadoss made a strong case for an international inquiry into human rights violations in the final phase of the civil war in Sri Lanka, arguing that the Presidential Commission to investigate into complaints regarding missing persons had found the allegations credible, The Hindu newspaper reported.The report of the Maxwell Paranagama Commission tabled in Sri Lankan Parliament called for an independent judicial investigation into the war crime allegations. Dr Ramadoss, though rejected the observation of the Commission that there was no genocide, said the Tamils would get justice only if there was an international inquiry.
