Fate of SL can be similar to that of Sudan – Kiriella

Speaking on the decision to support the government to overcome the immediate aftermath of “what is now certain - a US resolution,” UNP Vice President Lakshman Kiriella said the country is faced with a grave situation ‘similar to that of Sudan’ and therefore the UNP is concerned about the future of the country.

“We are not supporting the government but are focused on ensuring that our country does not face a similar fate to that of Sudan. The government has suppressed the local media and is not showing the real picture. If the government does not keep to its side of the bargain Sri Lanka faces the danger of having a referendum being conducted in the North and East just like in Sudan” he said.

Mr. Kiriella said, the draft resolution to be taken for vote on March 22, contains each aspect that the government of Sri Lanka had continuously assured the international community.

“The government has not kept to any of its international commitments. Even after the assurances given, that the LLRC recommendations would be implemented, nothing has been implemented” he said.

He said more countries would vote against Sri Lanka due to the actions of the government.

“It is certain that more countries would vote against us, and this government has allowed our country to suffer humiliation at the hands of the international community, which is a first in the post independent history of this country. We are concerned about our beloved country and hence the decision to work on an MoU with the government” he said. (Hafeel Farisz)

    UNP Signing The MOU Will Make Matters Worse. They Can't Even Settle Their Own Problems. UNP Is Like A Ship With No Rudder.

    Establishing of Independent,International Investigation in to the alledged war crimes in Sri Lanka is the first step of dividing Sri Lanka second step would be the holding of referendum in the north and Eastern provinces and finallay country would be divided as East Timor,Kosovo and South Sudan.As Mr Kiriella correctly says country is on a irreversible and grave position.

    We Are Almost There, Just To Clear The Final Hurdle.

    What an idiot. On top of that this guy is even suffering from amnesia. Who gave North and East on a platter to that ruthless blood thirsty Prabakaran by signing that so-called peace pact and also gave unlimited power to run that part of the country with its own administration like courts and bank etc etc? Wasn't it was Sudan or yours what?

    I think the LTTE diaspora and its supporters have a clear plan in destabilizing and even enacting a similar situation to Sudan. We have our own agents of them in the form of the BBS and JHU who are being used to (knowingly and unknowingly) for the cause. Rest of us are like frogs in a well going tralalala tralalala. At this rate everything points to the LTTE and its proxies achieving its goals. God bless our country and its communities.

    Mr. Kiriella,

    What do you know about the situation in Sudan?? Please do not talk utter rubbish. You are just trying to exaggerate. The situation in Sri Lanka is not at all similar to the situation in Sudan. We are a civilized country far better than any other country in the developing world. UNP would never have finished this war if they were in power. For 17 years they were in power, all they did was selling arms that were bought with money people had given to ARAKSHAKA ARAMUDALA to the LTTE. Now that the war is over, EU and America not earning money from arms sales. So don’t be selfish to have political gains when the country should be united in a situation like this. If you don’t, you will be repeating the history like the Kandian Nilame’s did when they betrayed the country by handing it over the British.

    there is no democracy in the UNP and what is the use in signing a MOU in the insistance of Ranil

    Malin Friday, 15 March 2013 05:33 AM

    UNPiers will have champaigne & kiribath if SL loses at the UNHRC. UNP tries to polticise at the expense of the country. Bastards.

    hari Friday, 15 March 2013 05:39 AM

    Does MOU includes any facilities, such as Prado and stuff with bodyguards

    Lotus Friday, 15 March 2013 05:47 AM

    What is with this opposition politicians, it's like spitting on their own faces. Ranil compares the country to Hitler's Germany and this guy compares it to Sudan. To gain petty political mileage they insult the country and the people in the eyes of the international community. It's pathetic and disgusting how they demean the country.
    Sri Lanka is much better than what the UNP wants people to believe and it is the best in the region in all fronts.

    Saman Friday, 15 March 2013 11:51 AM

    This kind of foolish comments make UNP worse than Sudanese opposition

    Budhist Friday, 15 March 2013 12:44 AM

    good drama.

    Truth Hurts Friday, 15 March 2013 01:01 AM

    LET THIS COUNTRY GO FOR A REFERENDUM!

    Upul Friday, 15 March 2013 03:35 PM

    Our thanks extend to your party too.
