Video: Mangala to go before UNHRC and local Panels

13 August 2014 09:36 am - 14     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


United National Party (UNP) MP Mangala Samaraweera today said he would likely testify before the panel appointed by the United Nations Human Rights Commissioner (UNHRC) to look into the happenings in the final stages of war in Sri Lanka and the Missing Persons Commission appointed by the Sri Lankan government.

Mr. Samaraweera told media that he would possibly tell the two panels on the activities of LTTE and inform the two panels on the assets that were held by the LTTE and what became of them.

“I would probably testify before the commission in order to safeguard the country’s reputation and the dignity of security forces,” he said

The UNP MP said he would also make a disclosure on the LTTE Leader Kumaran Pathmanathan (KP) and on the assets held by the LTTE in the coming days. (Yohan Perera and Lahiru Pothmulla)

    We never heard Mangala uttering a word against KP when he was with Prabakaran killing fellow Sri Lankans. The moment KP gave up his eelam demands and started collaborating with the defense authorities he became the enemy of Mangala and co. Coincidence?

    During the war he said Thoppigala was a jungle and the Army Commander was not even suitable for leading the Salvation Army. Now he wants to protect the reputation of the Army, how about shutting up for a while Mangala?
