U.N. Human Rights Chief Navi Pillay said, reacting to a government decision to deny investigators entry, that the United Nations can conduct an effective investigation into reports of war crimes in Sri Lanka without visiting the country. Sri Lankan government forces have been accused of widespread human rights violations in the final stages of a 26-year civil war against ethnic Tamil separatists which ended in May 2009. The United Nations estimated in a 2011 report that about 40,000 Tamil civilians were killed in the final weeks of the war, mostly by the army.
