UK House to discuss Lanka

By Sherwani Synon

The British House of Commons is to discuss the situation in Sri Lankan on Wednesday and the matter is to be raised by British Labor parliamentarian Siobhain McDonagh, the British Parliament website said.

According to the agenda for the House of Commons sittings on Wednesday, McDonagh is to seek a discussion on the UK government policy on investigations of alleged war crimes in Sri Lanka. Labor is now in the opposition after the Conservatives won the recent elections in Britain. 

Commenting on the discussion that is to take place at the House of Commons on Wednesday, Media Minister, Keheliya Rambukwella said that certain British political parties are pushing investigations on war crimes in Sri Lanka as their survival depends on the Tamil Diaspora. 

He added that Sri Lanka is sick of the issue of war crimes being brought up constantly especially after the President has taken the initiative to set up an imminent panel to investigate into these allegations.

Minister Rambukwella also said that they are waiting for the results of the report from the committee that is presently investigating war crimes allegations and that they will not entertain unnecessary outside pressure. (Daily Mirror online)
