UN Panel new development a govt. tactic: UNP

2010 Dec 22

The main opposition UNP yesterday alleged that the fresh report that the decision to allow the UN panel to communicate with the Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission (LLRC) without visiting Sri Lanka was a another move by the government to avoid humiliation.

UNP MP Lakshman Kiriella alleged that this was a tactic by the government to get away without granting visas to the panel."The government earlier boasted that visas would not be granted to the visiting panel but now it is thinking of ways and means to avoid humiliation," he said.

He reiterated that the government had violated a global tradition where an opposition leader of a country is briefed about the information on a war that the country is engaged in "The Sri Lankan opposition leader was never informed of the last stages of war.

Mr. Kiriella also reiterated that it was former Army commander Sarath Fonseka who could deliver the country from being charged with human rights violations during the final stages of war as it is he who is aware as to what really took place. 

 

Govt. planning UN Panel – LLRC meeting abroad ? - UNP says public and Opposition kept in the dark

The government, according to reports, was now planning a meeting between the LLRC and the UN ‘war crimes’ Panel, probing allegations against Sri Lankan security forces, the UNP said yesterday. Addressing the media in Colombo, Lakshman Kiriella MP, said that the Mahinda Rajapaksa regime as usual had kept the country and the main Opposition party, the UNP, in the dark. "The government having resisted the UN for one and a half years, said only twenty four hours ago, that it would permit the UN Inquiry Panel to enter Sri Lanka. However, according to reports, it was now planning to arrange an LLRC-UN Panel meeting in a foreign country. This, is too serious a matter to conceal from the public and the Opposition."
