Sinhalese groups brief Pillay

2013 Aug 29

Sinhalese civil organizations had talks with the UN High Commissioner for human Right Navi Pillay in Trincomalee today.

The Eastern Province Sinhalese Civil Organization met Pillay as part of the scheduled meetings Pillay had in Trincomalee this morning.

A source at the Civil Organization said that they had briefed her on some of the atrocities committed by the LTTE during the war.

They also advised her to consider what people living in Sri Lanka say and not what the diaspora keep on saying.

The Eastern Province Sinhalese Civil Organization also handed over a petition to Pillay and obtained an assurance from her to address issues faced by the Sinhalese.

The civil organization also told the UN Human Rights Chief that all the communities in Sri Lanka are now living together in a post war climate.

Meanwhile a demonstration was staged in Trincomalee by families of displaced people who later handed over a petition to Pillay through one of her officials. (Colombo Gazette)
