Uva Province Chief Minister Chamara Sampath Dassanayake today reported to the Human Rights Commission of Sri Lanka (HRCSL) for an inquiry into the incident where he is alleged to have forced the Badulla Tamil Girls’ School Principal to kneel in his presence.

The HRCSL launched the inquiry based on two complaints -- one lodged by Centre for Human Rights and Research (CHR) Executive Director Keerthi Tennakoon and the other by Ceylon Teachers' Union (CTU) President Joseph Stalin.

HRCSL had earlier recorded statements from the Uva Province education authorities and the school Principal on the incident.

Mr. Tennakoon told the media that Chief Minister Dassanayake, who had forced the principal to kneel, had today knelt before the people’s court.

“The Chief Minister attempted to dodge the HRCSL summons. This incident which has become a national issue saw many protests staged against the unacceptable action of Mr. Dassanayake. Protests will continue until justice is meted out,” he said. (Kalathma Jayawardhane)

    This moron should be taught what human rights mean in no uncertain terms. He is not worthy of holding any public office.

    Hope there'll not be an eye-wash. He has already given parties to various persons to hide this under the carpet. Why and what for ?

    These politicians, after assuming office, think they are godlike. However, those who climb high will fall deeply.

    The more the monkey climbs up the more he shows his backside!!!

    He is a former Police Officer - he knows the system. Watch how Police will help him - they took the teacher to his office to get a statement - would you believe it. But hope HRC will act sternly.

    Kadiya Thursday, 01 February 2018 06:39 PM

    A CM is like a father, a priest, a teacher that one could go for advice and wise counsel, but can anyone expect such from a moron like this. Sack the bugger!!!!!
