A Tamil National Alliance (TNA) delegation led by R. Sampanthan met US and British envoys in Colombo on Monday and discussed the US-led resolution to be submitted at the ongoing United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) sessions in Geneva, informed sources said.

The resolution calls for an international inquiry into alleged war crime allegations against Sri Lanka.

The TNA delegation comprising parliamentarians Mavai Senathiraja and M.A Sumanthiran on two separate occasions met British High Commissioner John Rankin and then the US Embassy Chargé d’Affaires William Weinsteinin in Colombo.

“Yes we met the British High Commissioner and the Deputy Ambassador and a US embassy official and discussed the ongoing UNHRC sessions,” Mr. Sumanthiran told Daily Mirror but he declined to comment further about their meetings with the envoys.

Informed sources said TNA held lengthy discussions with the envoys about the US-sponsored proposal to be presented at the UNHRC session on war crime allegations.

Earlier, the TNA had welcomed the US-sponsored draft resolution that seeks an international probe led by the High Commissioner for Human Rights and said it looked forward to a stronger resolution after revisions ahead of the voting at the Human Rights Council in Geneva. (Sunil Jayasiri)
