No need for int'l probe in SL-Sanath Jayasuriya

Former Sri Lankan cricketer Sanath Jayasuriya Saturday dismissed recent calls for an international probe into allegations of war crimes by government troops just before the end of the three decade-long civil war in the country.
 
"There is no need for any international probe because we have our own judicial system and the process of law is going on," Jayasuriya said during an interaction with the media in Kerala.
 
Jayasuriya arrived in the Kerala capital Saturday morning and will be the chief guest at a cricket tournament organised by the Thiruvananthapuram Press Club.
 
"Our President Mahinda Rajapaksa has done a wonderful job and is doing everything possible to see that there is overall development in the country... because things were not proper as there was the war that went on for three decades, so it's not easy," he said.
 
"Anyone can ask for a probe and you all know what happened at the recent CHOGM meeting held in Sri Lanka," the former cricketer said, referring to the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting held recently in Colombo.
 
On relations with India, he said India has been a long standing friend.
 
"Yes, there are some issues, but we continue to have a good friendship.
 
"China is participating in our infrastructure development, especially in road building," Jayasuriya added.
 
At the CHOGM, Sri Lanka insisted that the Commonwealth cannot sit in judgement on its members and rejected British Prime Minister David Cameron's warning of an international probe into its human rights record.
 
Cameron had warned that if an investigation is not completed by March 2014, Britain will use its position on the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) to call for a full, credible and international inquiry. (IANS)

    Why not agree to an independent inquiry to investigate LTTE war crimes for last 30 years? Yes we need to see the truth

    Prof Wickramatillake Sunday, 01 December 2013 08:09 AM

    Does he know much politics?

    flatwhite Sunday, 01 December 2013 04:14 AM

    Great comment stand by your country and defend your country do not listen even to sri lankans who have given up their citizenship to other countries immaterial if you are a sinhalese,tamil or a muslim and they have no right to talk about sri lanka from overseas instead they should focus on paying their mortgages.

    Sanaboy Sunday, 01 December 2013 04:32 AM

    He knows everything after entering to the politics.. Pls don't criticize his knowledge ha...

    Thomas Monday, 02 December 2013 04:00 AM

    Why fear for an International investigation if your Hands are Clean.

    Crazy Coot Saturday, 30 November 2013 03:28 PM

    Why didn't you hit that sixer to whatever Cameron was bowling?

    WAC Saturday, 30 November 2013 03:40 PM

    He would have got jealous of the media publicity Murali got in the past and therefore echoing the same.

    Dammika Saturday, 30 November 2013 03:42 PM

    Sana you can tell this when you have a cup of tea at GAMAE KADE .... don't lose your already lost reputation further

    Reader Sunday, 01 December 2013 09:41 AM

    Why not wear a Doctorate like your other nut mate, before mouthing to the press.

    janaka Monday, 02 December 2013 04:12 AM

    Do not talk nonsense every body knows who you are and from where you came. All credit goes to Arujuna and the then selectors who gave you a chance. Please do not forget your past.

    Ramani Saturday, 30 November 2013 04:00 PM

    If you look at "The Final Phase" documentary its a classic reply for all C4 documentaries processed by anti-GoSL groups.! Any fool will understand the gospel truth with comparing the incidents by both these groups. Its a huge houx by the LTTE diaspora, HR activists, NOGs, TNA and T/Nadu jokers are trying a combined effort to level fabricated allegations at their whims and fancies at unconcerned GoSL, as they are fully aware such allegations are utterly baseless!

    Independent Tuesday, 03 December 2013 04:20 AM

    Lets make him our External Affairs Minister. As additional perk bring Sri Lankan Airlines under his purview.

    Ratavasiya Saturday, 30 November 2013 04:15 PM

    Then you better have an internal one without telling baila..

    yako Pako Sunday, 01 December 2013 09:52 AM

    Pissu magula Saturday, 30 November 2013 04:32 PM

    who cares man. just go and play cricket in the ground. The grounds are drying and crying without u. Dance stages are waiting for u..pls go

    clueless Sunday, 01 December 2013 09:52 AM

    You are spot on, diaspora is trying to keep their revenue stream, Cameron is trying to win an election, JLalitha is anyway crack.

    Sana now I respect you as a politician as well. Good work keep talking.

    Dicttator Sunday, 01 December 2013 09:55 AM

    He has no morals to speak on anything after abandoning the family with three small kids.. I hate him and his bloody face

    johan Saturday, 30 November 2013 04:51 PM

    Maiden speech in political career - out of his subject

    asoka Saturday, 30 November 2013 04:55 PM

    murali did say that sana boy...tell something else...

    anil Sunday, 01 December 2013 09:59 AM

    People will accept your comments about multi marriage.

    Amal Monday, 02 December 2013 04:29 AM

    Sanna always do good thing for the country. Last week one minister was angry with another for not including his son in the team. Sanna, knowing country is more important than cricket intervened and selected the guy. The same logic applies here.

    Suq Madique Sunday, 01 December 2013 09:59 AM

    Too much pus?

    raspi Saturday, 30 November 2013 05:07 PM

    Jagath Leanage Saturday, 30 November 2013 05:27 PM

    We respect you as a cricketer but not as politician because they are set of liars.

    Haka Haka Monday, 02 December 2013 04:39 AM

    Flatwhite at least everyone can afford a quality lifestyle and mortgage overseas, but in SL, we are all poor and begging from white man.

    Karu Saturday, 30 November 2013 05:38 PM

    Don't worry.....if they come they won't probe corruption in sports

    wickrama Sunday, 01 December 2013 10:11 AM

    Just passed O/L, doesn't know anything except cricket.

    Sirisena Sunday, 01 December 2013 10:16 AM

    Sanath has no clue about politics - soon he will start losing sense in Cricket as well

    John Sunday, 01 December 2013 05:40 AM

    You can't be a staraight bat in politics - the quicker you realize that you won't 'tread where angels dare'......

    Cindy Montrose Sunday, 01 December 2013 10:37 AM
