The United Nations said that its expert panel on Sri Lanka would deal with parties other than the LLRC, since the Panel was broader than Sri Lanka’s own Panel.

“..the panel will work broader than simply dealing with the LLRC,” the UN’s acting Deputy Spokesman Farhan Haq told media in New York yesterday responding to a question whether the Panel would speak only with the LLRC in Sri Lanka.

    And May we know how broad this panel is and the reasons behind the claim? On What grounds please ?

    Keeping the Objectives in mind, UNP stand for Foreign Donors interest always. These statements are to get the approval for next Budget and Destroy of Country image is NOT a concern.

    Nilantha Friday, 24 December 2010 04:12 AM

    This time they are trying to come with different face... but intention is still same.

    Most of those who have added comments above seem to agree on one thing; that the U.N. is an affiliate of the U.S. to carry out it's writ. and they really are correct!

    mohamed Friday, 24 December 2010 04:14 AM

    supperb move by UN. cos they know about our present government very well

    Yuri Friday, 24 December 2010 04:29 AM

    Oh No no no no.... its seems like they start to understand the Lankan national Game..

    gonotha Friday, 24 December 2010 04:37 AM

    Well said United Nations. This is how a job should be done.
    LLRC - Rajapakse's eyewash. No right thinking person believes the LLRC.

    Panel was appointed when UN deliberately failed to prevent on US / UK violations of HR in Muslim countiris This panel is big joke.
    They should not be allowed to come to Sri Lanka soil.simply becuase Sri Lanka has not violated and this is a case of a discrimination

    Conga.. Friday, 24 December 2010 04:51 AM

    UN do u think this is a Colony of the western country still.....ha ha...

    adahan Friday, 24 December 2010 04:57 AM

    It appears the government is yielding to the pressure of the UN. In such an event tactics by those henchmen like Weerawangsa and Champika will not be of any significant.

    read the message and understand properly before commenting

    Konde bendapu china Friday, 24 December 2010 05:02 AM

    and we know hidden agenda behind this panel

    Said Hussein Friday, 24 December 2010 05:04 AM

    The UN is absolutely right. All investigations will have to be broad based and they will also have to speak to the real victims who are living abroad now and those still in Refugee Camps or under detention for no reason. This is the way to get the real truth. The time has come and those responsible for the atrocities cannot hide anymore.

    Said Hussein

    Mr. Wimal Weerawansa!! Time for you to get ready for another glass of plain water from Presidents hand!!

    Truth Exposed Friday, 24 December 2010 05:02 AM

    Yes, UN has everhy right to probe into any wrong doings in member countries, but they should also look into what happend in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    ranjithsilva Friday, 24 December 2010 05:20 AM

    Hon. Dharmapala stated a century age that "Some Black aliens representing White masters will destroy the Country" and correctly, they are now active. Some comments are really from Black Traitors underestimating the cleaning of Tiger terrors had some years ago.

    All the guys here crying about 'western conspiracies' know one thing. You might think that you are great and powerful and the west is jealous of you and needs 'conspiracies' to defeat you. The truth is, if the west, or even US alone, is that much against you, then they don' need conspiracies. They can invade and beat you and nobody will help you. Be thankful that they are not that much against you - YET!.

    bigsam Friday, 24 December 2010 06:06 AM

    If too broad, might get stuck in metal detector at BIA!

    Nilantha Friday, 24 December 2010 06:06 AM

    Are you what..?
    They invaded Iraq, Afghanistan and even before Vietnam... but could they achieve what they wanted...?

    Raja Friday, 24 December 2010 06:42 AM

    let see the " BROADER " means

    THEY WILL COME WITH A DOOSRA- TO KNOCK OUT THE GOSL- PLS ASK WW TO BE PREPARE WITH HIS TRANSLATOR

    Ayr Friday, 24 December 2010 07:23 AM

    The word "Broader" here implies something was "Narrower"

    dsa Friday, 24 December 2010 07:52 AM

    So you think that the US cannot defeat us or make us do what they wanted to?

    tissa Friday, 24 December 2010 09:18 AM

    They are keeping the misinformation sent by the lot who have some ulterior motives relating to the peace and stability of Sri Lanka

    tissa Friday, 24 December 2010 09:23 AM

    Did you read the UN Charter and resolutions? The SG/UNO does not have such arbitrary powers

    Dinithii Friday, 24 December 2010 10:13 AM

    Mr Smart, you do not seem to be that smart. To invade a country they need a case such as human rights violations or terrorism or some weapons of mass destruction. They are using the human rights weapon against us. They are trying to pressurise us 1. cos of China 2. cos of the tamil votes in their countries.....They are smart unlike you and they know that going for an outright war is expensive. Do you think the british conquered us in 1815 purely with their military might? No they deployed massive conspiracies to create suspicion between the king and his men. Be smart man!!

    dsa Friday, 24 December 2010 10:29 AM

    This is the UN, not the UNP

    anwar Saturday, 25 December 2010 03:20 AM

    If They want to do what we did in NE, they will wipe us out in 2 days. We couldnt even intercept 2 tiger planes , they made 7 runs

    podda Friday, 24 December 2010 11:52 AM

    Just like you thought LTTE is great and powerful and invincible. LOL

    MagodisThuma Friday, 24 December 2010 01:01 PM

    We don't need these useless Panels
    Our electricity bill is going up...Please give us some Solar Panels !.

    raj Friday, 24 December 2010 02:24 PM

    as i commented earlier, if the UN's mission is not broader, it simply a copy and paste finding. I welcome the UN's decision. We need an inquiry since the allegation is severe. It cannot be ignored. Only innocent should be protected not criminals regardless of their ethnicity or religion.

    nagu Friday, 24 December 2010 02:58 PM

    Get Lost and go to Irag & Afganistan....

    nagu Friday, 24 December 2010 03:01 PM

    Good Question.....All these are Puppets of US & West.....

    channa Friday, 24 December 2010 03:09 PM

    Just what US, UK and west wants.....Dont be an idiot....

    channa Friday, 24 December 2010 03:12 PM

    What Truth....the things what US, Miliband, Vaiko and LTTE diaspora wants......

    channa Friday, 24 December 2010 03:13 PM

    Dont worry Smart is not so Smart.....

    KHKaru Friday, 24 December 2010 04:32 PM

    Those who were responsible for the atrocities were dealt with at Nandikadal lagoon, though the punishment was rather too merciful I would say! And the real victims are those who were chased out by V.P. & co.
