Release SF to defeat UN report: Sajith

2011 Apr 24

A senior leader of Sri Lanka's main opposition said that the challenge by the United Nations SG Report could only be defeated by concerted effort of all political parties along with the release of former army commander Sarath Fonseka.

United National Party (UNP) co-deputy leader, Sajith Premadasa told BBC Sandeshaya that these issues did emerge due to unscrupulous and unprincipled foreign policy of the government. "As a result the whole country has plunged into a pathetic situation for which the government is solely responsible," he said.

UNP Co-Deputy Leader, Sajith Premadasa said that no doubt LTTE had to be wiped out but the government should protect its citizens irrespective of caste or creed.

Commenting on issues relating to the UNP, he said that official appointments to the party should represent those who had voiced for its re-organisation.

"It was unfortunate if they were being victimised", he added.(BBC)
