Five countries including Latvia, Estonia, Macedonia, Australia requested Sri Lanka to comply with the trials in the International war in connection with war crimes and other charges.   The government has refused the request stating that it allows the Court to act against 20 Military Officers who don’t even have an investigation against with the Human Rights Council in Geneva.
