SCRIPT:O rascunho de um relatório interno da ONU sobre a guerra civil no Sri Lanka foi divulgado nesta terça-feira pela rede britânica BBC. No documento, as Nações Unidas admitem ter falhado na proteção de civis nos últimos meses do conflito e fazem um apelo por uma melhor ação humanitária. Em maio de 2009, as forças do Sri Lanka conseguiram conter os rebeldes tâmeis depois de décadas de confrontos brutais. O conflito causou a morte de mais de 100 mil pessoas, de acordo com as estimativas da ONU, e ambos os lados são acusados de crimes de guerra.O relatório critica os funcionários da representação diplomática na capital Colombo, que não perceberam a prevenção das mortes de civis como sua responsabilidade.O texto ainda acusa a ONU de não tornar público o fato de que “a grande maioria” das mortes de civis foi causada por bombardeios do governo, uma informação que o Sri Lanka repetidamente negou. A análise interna também questiona a decisão das Nações Unidas de retirar os funcionários do país em setembro de 2008, depois de o governo advertir que não poderia mais garantir a segurança deles.Fontes da ONU afirmaram à BBC que o secretário-geral Ban Ki-moon estava determinado a levar em consideração as recomendações do documento com o objetivo de aprender com as lições do Sri Lanka e, dessa forma, melhor responder a novas crises internacionais, como é o caso do sangrento conflito na Síria.SHOTLIST:**ALL FOOTAGE IN 4:3**UNKNOWN LOCATION, SRI LANKA.
