The Colombo Chief Magistrate today informed the CID to obtain a report from Sri Lanka’s permanent representative to the UN in Geneva Kshenuka Seniviratna, on the comments made on Sri Lanka earlier this year by the UN special representative on extra judicial killings Philip Alston.

The Magistrate made the order while probing the case involving former Army Commander General Sarath Fonseka on the alleged comments he had mad to a newspaper on the final stages of the war.

Philip Alston had sent a letter to the Sri Lankan Ambassador in Geneva regarding the General's statement.

General Fonseka is to be indicted in the High Court for the alleged statement he made to the Sunday Leader newspaper alleging that in the final stages of the LTTE war, Defence Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa had ordered Brigadier Shavindra Silva to shoot the LTTE cadres carrying white flags and surrendering to the security forces.

    why can't we have the investigation bi-lateral than having a unilateral way ?
    In that case if the general is guilty of the charges which has be pressed against him, No one is gonna complain about it.
