Common opposition candidate Maithripala Sirisena said today that he would not allow international forces or the Tamil diaspora to drag incumbent President Mahinda Rajapaksa, his family or anyone in the security forces to an International War Crimes Court.
He made this pledge on behalf of the opposition at a media briefing this morning.
Mr. Sirisena also pledged to have a proper reconciliation plan to heal all divisions among various communities and to bring together all ethnic and religious groups in the country.
He appealed for a level playing field for the presidential election. (Yohan Perera and Lahiru Pothmulla)
