A UN vehicle was damaged by angry residents after it killed one woman and injured two when they were crossing the road in Vandaramullei, Batticaloa this evening. The vehicle is said to have been a part of a convoy of an EU delegation which was headed towards Batticaloa from Valachchenai. Police said that the driver of the UN vehicle was taken into the police custody (S.D)
End of the day, whomever and whatever said, it is traffic accident, UN nothing to do for that, The Driver is a Sri Lankan who should be punished and band for driving in the future.

Anton, you are right, all are sri lankan drivers,. we have to educate our drivers as to how to drive on the roads and there should be strict procedure in issuing driving licence and monitoring the drivers on the road, if we want to reduce accidents on the roads.

I was nearly knocked down by a UN vehicle at Kollupitiya while I was on a pedestrian crossing. Rascals think the country and everythin in it including the roads are theirs.

Owner too responsible. He should Discipline his staff (Driver). Should not allow him to drive Carelessly
DN Thursday, 03 May 2012 02:40 AM
It is not the Vehicle , The driver is responsible.
Daya Thursday, 03 May 2012 02:55 AM
Mind you drivers are Sri Lankans. Nothing to do with UN.
PGA Thursday, 03 May 2012 02:48 AM
It is the driver of the vehicle who is responsible, not the owner.

In a way this will give the EU delegation the taste of the people and why we need troops in North and East.
