The Human Rights Committee of the Inter-Parliamentary Union has rejected the complaint lodged by UNP MP Dr. Jayalath Jayawardena regarding the alleged violations of the rights of MP Sarath Fonseka. The Committee decided yesterday, Geneva time, that there had been no human rights violations in the case of the arrest and trial of the former Army Commander General Fonseka.


The Government of Sri Lanka was represented by former Minister of Human Rights and Disaster Management and the present Minister of Plantation Industries Mahinda Samarasingha who explained to the Committee, during a two hour session, that the rights of MP Fonseka had been fully upheld. The former Human Rights Minister had explained in detail the events that unfolded from the time of the arrest of Fonseka up until his trial and final verdict.
 

The 154 member Committee had thereafter decided that the compliant lodged by Jayawardena was null and void due to the proper legal procedure of Sri Lanka being followed during the trial and arrest of MP Fonseka. (DS)

    It's a win win situation for JJ. Free return air ticket to Geneva.

    Why not apply all your energy towards the betterment of the people and country, for once!

    Vijitha Herath and Anura Kumara? You really don't mean what you say, right ....

    Tilak.A Saturday, 09 October 2010 04:17 PM

    What can you expect from JJ in favour of Sarath Fonseka who killed Prabhakaran - JJ's God Father?

    Podi Wije Thursday, 07 October 2010 01:08 PM

    well done HRC!!!!!......MK, you are quite correct... our idots still dont get it.

    Nish Thursday, 07 October 2010 01:12 PM

    Even the HRC admitted but those idiots can't realise. Can 154 member committee decision go wrong?
    May not aware or knowingly ignore the truth as depending and living on the funds of the NGOs and political parties.
    JJ is a person who always stands for western and helped to Christianise the country by the help of cease fire agreements and by other means. You can still see the neon lights that were fixed throughout the north and east that era. Does he support MR?

    Percy Mandawala Friday, 08 October 2010 12:42 AM

    JJ has not presented the case properly.

    jaya Thursday, 07 October 2010 01:55 PM

    this shows goverment follow propper procedure in the SF case now JVP and UNP goons will tell that MR has given bribe to HRC torefuse the case.

    Mylanka Thursday, 07 October 2010 02:01 PM

    attack after attack.... hit after hit.... puch after punch....(I think.... there is no recover for SF in this world...!! )

    KanKuna Thursday, 07 October 2010 03:24 PM

    Absolutely true. If a real friend like Vijitha Herath or Anura Kumara Dissanayake, who have unparalleled interpersonal and oratory skills and intelligence went there, the results would have been surely different.

    thusi Thursday, 07 October 2010 03:43 PM

    well said....

    sri lankan public Thursday, 07 October 2010 03:58 PM

    Finally, UNP itself make the road to prove that the legal action is not violating HR. Anyone in the world except brainless UNP and JVP bancrupt politicians.

    Saman Thursday, 07 October 2010 04:04 PM

    white Flag,Cash in the Locker still pending,who know s what else MR got in his file ,many more to come ,He will spend more time behind bar,Sorry SF u made a big mistake by go behind Ranil.Mangala and JVP

    Jaya Thursday, 07 October 2010 10:21 AM

    This has happaned due to failure of JJ. may JJ real intension was Keep SF away from Politics. Dear SF please identified real friends.

    JUNIOR CITIZEN Thursday, 07 October 2010 04:22 PM

    if that is so you should be happy. the most powerful man

    JUNIOR CITIZEN Thursday, 07 October 2010 04:23 PM

    surrender

    Rathne Thursday, 07 October 2010 10:42 AM

    jayalath you failed again. you are looser and on the same boat with your leader

    Sri Lankan Thursday, 07 October 2010 10:46 AM

    Huu Dosthara huuuu

    Thassim Thursday, 07 October 2010 10:47 AM

    Even for a cough, this guy going to human right commission. Good lesson for JJ

    Wasantha Friday, 08 October 2010 07:06 AM

    A donkey cannot do the job of a dog. DR.JJ is a medical doctor by profession and he cannot do the job of a Lawyer. However anyyone can be a politician as it does not want any qualification.

    shameer Thursday, 07 October 2010 05:58 PM

    may be you are the most important person in the world, if you keep your mouth controlled.

    JJ is not the correct person to place this in front of the Human Rights commission. His oratory skills are not logical at all. A qualified experienced lawyer should have done this. Who on eartch sent JJ to this place ? I wonder whether RW influenced JJ to present it in such a manner so that it will not be entertained.

    Ranjith Thursday, 07 October 2010 11:04 AM

    MR took all these UNP'rs to tackle the international community. And they will do any dirty thing shamelessly to be in a ministerial post

    MK Thursday, 07 October 2010 11:06 AM

    THis is whats pathetic. Even the world body acknowledges that there is not human right violation when it comes to SF's arrest.. and our idiots dont get it!

    Determination Thursday, 07 October 2010 11:07 AM

    So they too are afraid of Idi Amin. Terrorising the whole world.

    hemantha Thursday, 07 October 2010 11:08 AM

    Only God will Help Former General !!!

    Gunda Thursday, 07 October 2010 11:12 AM

    Mahinda Samarasinghe our next PM......

    Citizen Friday, 08 October 2010 04:10 AM

    Yes, although the sickness is there the Doctor did not identify the symptoms properly and prescribe the medicine. Consequently, the patient died!

    Wara Friday, 08 October 2010 04:12 AM

    Yes, one crime he made was, going behind traitor and dance according to their tune as you have lesser knowledge in politics.

    Ananda Thursday, 07 October 2010 11:31 AM

    yes ,,, but if he would fail???

    KD Thursday, 07 October 2010 08:19 PM

    Which one? We Sri Lankans have 330million gods protecting us.
