On August 4th 2006 in Sri Lanka, seventeen ACF International humanitarian aid workers were assassinated, in the midst of the violent outbreaks in the city of Muttur. Following this attack, ACF International had to bring an end to its work in Sri Lanka. Now, seven years later, this crime still remains unpunished.
The ONG confined TBWAPARIS with the task of making the public and the international community aware of the frightening acts that have marked the last few years: beyond the brutal Muttur crime, the ONG's concerns include the overall security of humanitarian aid workers.
This poignant film illustrates the dramatic consequences of a crime against humanitarian aid workers. It will be released this March, while the 25Ã¨me United Nations Human Rights Council meets in Geneva to examine and deliver a resolution on the Sri Lanka. Attacks and threats to humanitarians, like that of the Muttur assassination, deprives the most vulnerable from getting vital aid. Basically, killing an aid worker is punishing those he helps.
