Michael Martin’s Statement in the Dail

Notice of matter for the adjournment

The urgent need for the Irish government to fully support, and help implement, actions to end the human catastrophe taking place in Sri Lanka between the Sri Lankan armed forces and the Tamil Tigers; that is, to help broker an immediate cease-fire by both sides; secondly, to assist in ensuring that humanitarian aid groups have full access to the Tamil area in the north east country where the conflict is centred; such actions being all the more urgent given reports of children being used as human shields.
