Kohona scoffs EU response

11 May 2011 07:00 am - 5     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


Sri Lanka's Permanent Representative to the UN Palitha Kohona yesterday scoffed the EU's statement on the Panel report of the UN Chief and said it is the statement of ‘international do-gooders’ trying to clean ‘their conscience, the Inner City Press reported.

The EU statement reiterates its view that an independent process to address these extremely serious allegations should contribute to strengthening the process of reconciliation and ensuring lasting peace and security in Sri Lanka.

About the Sri Lanka Navy taking over management even of public parks in Colombo, Kohona argued that “there are 200,000 of them with nothing to do,” that the military assembled for the conflict must now be re-trained in civilian work. Parks: the new growth economy.

    All the human rights violations are gainst a small poor country like Sri Lanka. Rich and big countries can get away with murder.

    Sri, You should remember Tamils around the world will not rest until the war criminals are punished and bring justice to the victims. It is our primary objectives. Only war criminals would worry about the UN report.
