The British House of Commons is to discuss the situation in Sri Lankan on Wednesday and the matter is to be raised by British Labor parliamentarian Siobhain McDonagh, the British Parliament website said.

According to the agenda for the House of Commons sittings on Wednesday, McDonagh is to seek a discussion on the UK government policy on investigations of alleged war crimes in Sri Lanka. Labor is now in the opposition after the Conservatives won the recent elections in Britain. 

Commenting on the discussion that is to take place at the House of Commons on Wednesday, Media Minister, Keheliya Rambukwella said that certain British political parties are pushing investigations on war crimes in Sri Lanka as their survival depends on the Tamil Diaspora. 

He added that Sri Lanka is sick of the issue of war crimes being brought up constantly especially after the President has taken the initiative to set up an imminent panel to investigate into these allegations.

Minister Rambukwella also said that they are waiting for the results of the report from the committee that is presently investigating war crimes allegations and that they will not entertain unnecessary outside pressure. (Daily Mirror online)

    Why not initiated with war crimes committed by your country during 185 to 1948 in Sri Lanka.

    I respect the British Labour Party for raising their voice to protect democrazy in sri lanka

    This may be after 'BBC Hard Talk' with GR. If we are not handling things diplomatically, we will
    face the consequences, unless we dont beg from each and every country!!

    When the war was on against all communities in the country by the terrorists nobody bothered to discuss their crimes. How many people were bruutally murdered by the terrosists? Now after recovering from brutal hand of terrorism everybody seems to probe in and dictate terms to us. Modern imperialism!

    What has Britain got to do with the democrarcy in another country? Do you think they still rule the world to enforce what they think is right on other nations? You may prefer to be under the jackboot of a foreign nation, but the Lankans have moved away from days long time ago. If you are not happy or have an issue with the Governance of SriLanka, then I suggest you seek refuge in a Western Country of your choice.

    Why is that UK, USA and other big nations are after Sri Lanka. At present there are more serious issues that are taking place as we speak. Are they deaf and blind?

    Monday, 14 June 2010 06:51 AM

    first go and investigate the war crimes done by your best friend (USA) in Afghainstan and Iraq

    Monday, 14 June 2010 06:54 AM

    Yes this is a good move to protect democracy and HR in Srilanka but Please do not limit it to lip service it has to be something more than that

    Monday, 14 June 2010 07:05 AM

    There is a moral obligation to investigate the allegation by an impartial body. Why is GOSL afraid if they have nothing to hide.

    These people still cannot accept the factor that they have lost their colonies in the 1940's and still losing their grip on other nations as many powerful Asian countries are coming forward. If British parliament can decide on SL, why do we have elections here?

    The war ended over a year ago. Scores of people died. The country paid a heavy civilian death toll to achieve this. There are still people in camps and the government is busy celebrating victories for the last one year. There are still abductions, kidnapping and ransoms going on in the north and east. Unless the govt cleans up their house, others will constantly feel the need to tell us that we need to do so.

    .... and let us discuss UK's role in atrocities committed in Afghanistan and Iraq.

    Is Sri Lanka still the 'overseas department of UK'?
