UN Peace Keepers involved in Sex Scandals in Haiti

The UN is Taking Action Against the Sri Lankan Secuty Forces who come under UN Jurisdiction




Colombo - The UN is to charge 114 Sri Lankan Security Forces (SF) who were on peace-keeping missions with sexual exploitation and abuse against children, according to the Sunday Times weekend report in Sri Lanka.


 


The UN's Office of Internal Oversight Services (OIOS) says it is assisting in the pending legal proceedings initiated by the Sri Lankan Government, to ensure that all military members found guilty, according to Sri Lankan law, ‘are held accountable for their actions.’ The UN says charges should include rape - because it involves children under 18 years of age - which constitutes a ‘war crime’ in the context of military conflicts.
