MR says Pillay's report highly prejudiced

2013 Sep 30

President Mahinda Rajapaksa said that the people of Sri Lanka believe that UN Rights Chief Navi Pillay had written her report even before she visited Sri Lanka.

“People of Sri Lanka think that she (Pillay) has written the report before she came here ...  when she met me she didn't complain about anything .... This is a democratic country, they (the people) can say anything ....,” the President said in an interview with Al-Jazeera television.

Speaking further he said, “We allowed her to go anywhere, allowed her to meet anybody she wants .... This is propaganda against Sri Lanka, so please compare with other countries, don't isolate a small country like Sri Lanka and try to bully Sri Lanka.”
