It is deeply regrettable and unfortunate that some portions of my remarks at Monday's news briefing, especially in the English media, had lost its original meaning and intention either due to the translation or for reasons unknown, Northern Province Governor Dr. Suren Raghavan told the media.

“It had been brought to my attention that there has been some media reporting on the press interview I gave about my participation at the Geneva UNHRC session and a subsequent reaction from the OHCHR to the same. True we discussed our differences and the fundamental reasons for them; further how to overcome them collectively.

However, all our exchanges were with full of bilateral respect. UNHRC High Commissioner Michelle Bachelet and the entire staff were extremely helpful, professional and cordial and our meetings were at the highest level of cooperation and goodwill. We all worked together and negotiated for the path of post war recovery of peace and democracy in Sri Lanka,” Dr. Raghavan said.

“I regret if there has been any misquoting and misrepresentation. Madam Bachelet is an exemplary high commissioner who displayed the highest order of diplomacy and skills which I valued so much” he added.

    Sour Grapes Raghavan, I listened to your press briefing and you did say that the UNHCR accepted their mistake. People like you bring disrepute to the country. It is common knowledge that you are a stooge of the President. You tried to score brownie points.

    You discovered the so-called mistake in the translation only after the UNCHR Chief protested at your misrepresentation/distortion of facts! You guys bend down backwards at Geneva and come back and speak like "VEERAYAS" for local consumption!! Shame, Shame!!!

    What more does one expect from a MY3 Appointee - political brownies in time for PE as a plus for selection and representing him at UN.

    You are not a politician. Therefore please behave with the dignity of an educated person and do not stoop to the level that GLP has descended- lower than the belly of a snake.
