Investigative journalist Emanuel Stoakes interviews key witnesses who gave evidence in 2014 to the ongoing UN investigation on Sri Lanka (OISL). The OISL report will be presented to the UN Human Rights Council on 30th September 2015. Witnesses from across the world explain what they saw in 2009 and why they cannot speak out in Sri Lanka on the mass atrocities that took place.

NGOs Society For Threatened People (STP) and Together Against Genocide (TAG) will release their written submissions and full report to HRC 30 on the persecution of witnesses in Sri Lanka.

The projection will be followed by discussion on the protection of witnesses to mass atrocities in the context of another upcoming UN resolution on accountability in Sri Lanka and the implications for the choice of prosecution mechanisms.
