Whatever comments made, a huge population (whether they are tamils, LTTE Supporters or diaspora is immaterial) is accusing this regime of war crimes. Does MR have real guts to stand-up for an independent probe on this issue and claim all of these accusers wrong or will he keep hiding disgracefully behind the security of the sinhalese population screaming patriotism and foreign plots.

Dear Prof : If the opposition members are let to make their speeches at the parliament without interruptions , if the journalists are free to write without fear , if making false allegations to the UNDESIRABLE persons are stopped , no other whitewashing to the government is necessary . Thus the world will be with us and Diaspora will be weakened.

Well, MR was living with complex that he cant go to UK, so he wanted to to prove to his party and fellows, but now No SL politician make a single trip out of Sunthara lanka.
Dr.Najimudeen Tuesday, 07 December 2010 09:10 PM
Forget about all these things for the moment, If there is no any foul play, why should we be worried about tribunals and inquiries? Can't we face them with truth and brave?
lankaputha Tuesday, 07 December 2010 10:18 AM
1st question, was this a private tour or a diplomatic tour? 2nd question, what was this union... the union that all students are a member of or only 10-12 Sri lankans? 3rd question, for a single addressing, why a group of 50 + went to UK?
globetrotter Tuesday, 07 December 2010 09:37 PM

In other words, the President does not care to listen to advice given by his Purohithas like the old professori. What a shame.
Jagath Tuesday, 07 December 2010 09:23 AM
This is a very serious lapse on the part of the Minister. He should resign immediately on this issue.
mmj Tuesday, 07 December 2010 04:50 PM
Mervin is one to be blame,he should have informed the HE.
Sinhalaya Tuesday, 07 December 2010 09:27 AM
Then ,it's good lesson for HE to think 100 times before take such decisions.....
