The main purpose of US Secretary Mike Pompeo, who will be visiting Sri Lanka shortly, was to prepare legal background for the US army to handle main spots in Sri Lanka at any time without being subject them to the Sri Lankan law, National Freedom Front (NFF) leader Wimal Weerawansa said yesterday.

He told news briefing that there was another attempt with this arrival to sign the Status of Forces Agreement (SOFA) which is an agreement between a host country and a foreign nation stationing military forces in that country and to sign Acquisition and Cross-Servicing Agreement (ACSA).

Nevertheless, he said the USA was attempting to make Sri Lanka their next military base.

Meanwhile, he said an office of the United States (US) Bar Association was going to be set up in Colombo, “Since the Bar Association of Sri Lanka (BASL) has shown its dissent over the setting up of such an office, the process has been temporarily halted,” he said.

“It is questionable as to why the Government has allowed setting up an office of US Bar Association in Sri Lanka. There is no office of any country’s Bar Association in Sri Lanka.

He said the hidden motive of this is to protect and prove the innocence of Americans who commit criminal activities in Sri Lanka. (Sheain Fernandopulle)

    This is a kind of phorbia or this guy is trying to take the attention of the public by make them scared. This type of parasites are very dangerous. Should be ousted at the next general election. He is like the dobie boy who shouted koti enawa koti enawa to prank the villagers and when the tiger came actually no one came for the rescue.

    A US military base would bring the country a lot of money. Also many companies and the people in the area would benefit enormously from a base.

    Why is this clown still getting recognition? He's clearly mentally unstable and seeking attention.
