UN requested to repatriate Lt. Col. Kalana Amunupure in Mali
20 October 2018 Current Affairs:

The United Nations (UN) has requested Sri Lanka to immediately repatriate Lt. Col. Kalana Amunupure, the commander of the country’s contingent in the UN peacekeeping force in Mali. The recommendation comes after the review of his human rights background. UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric said that the request for Lt. Col. Kalana Amunupure to leave was made based on the recently received information.

Earlier this year a list drawn up by ITJP identified several alleged perpetrators of war crimes that had been deployed by Sri Lanka on UN peacekeeping missions. While human rights defenders have called for better vetting of troops deployed on UN missions, Sri Lankan officials have boasted that their involvement in the missions was indicative of the prestige of their armed forces.
