The Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) said today Minister Rauff Hakeem should opt-out of the Parliamentary Select Committee (PSC) on the Easter Sunday carnage as he used to know Zahran Hashim who led the attacks.

Addressing a press conference, SLPP Chairman Prof. G.L. Peiris said video footage had surfaced in which Sri Lanka Muslim Congress (SLMC) Leader Rauff Hakeem was seen engaged in a conversation with a group of people including Zahran.

“Although six months had elapsed since the bombings, justice has not been meted out to the victims. Minister Hakeem should not have been a member of the PSC,” he said, adding that SLPP presidential candidate Gotabaya Rajapaksa pledged to appoint a presidential commission to look into the incident.

Asserting that Mr. Rajapaksa would win the forthcoming presidential election, he said the incoming government would have limited time in getting ready for the UNHRC session scheduled for March next year.

“Even the present government found provisions of the UNHRC resolution on Sri Lanka contrary to the Constitution. There is no way for the present government to accept it,” he said.

    Hakeem is a no shame politico. So no one would expect him resigning.

    We are now friends with India which created and trained the destructive LTTE, in this context it is ludicrous to push out Hakeem from the investigating committee simply because he had known the terrorist in the past.

    Why didn't he done this during the time? Now this is a politically motivated issue.

    What about Hisbullah on your side shaking hands with Zaharan, and the admission of Ramukwella that SLFP paid salaries to Zaharan.
