The National Freedom Front (NFF) today commended the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP)’s decision to ascertain the views of Parliament on the letter sent by UN Human Rights High Commissioner regarding the appointment of an investigative team on Sri Lanka and her request seeking permission for the team to enter the country.

“As an ally of the ruling coalition, we are pleased that the SLFP had decided to refer the letter of UN Human Rights High Commissioner Navi Pillay, asking permission to send a team to investigate alleged human rights violations in Sri Lanka, to Parliament,” NFF Spokesman Mohammed Muzammil told a news conference.

He said that Parliament was one of the best mechanisms to determine whether the country should or should not allow an international team of investigators to enter the country.  “A public referendum is also a good method in which to ask for the opinion of the people. Since Parliamentarians are selected by the people, consulting it is a wise decision, he said.

He said that the NFF had from the very beginning warned that there would be an international probe on Sri Lanka. “Only those factions that are against the best interests of the country would support such a probe. This is a good opportunity for the opposition to also show that they are real patriots,” he said . (Lahiru Pothmulla and Sanath Desmond)

    So now Weerawansa prefers to use his mouth-piece rather than using his foul mouth.

    You have no idea of what this means to SL do you? Why were you silent when the dumb professor and sajin vaas was handling this matter of national importance.
