UNHRC resolution against govt. not SL: Kiriella


While claiming that the Government was trying only to protect itself by creating a rumpus on the upcoming UNHRC sessions in Geneva, UNP Parliamentarian Lakshman Kiriella challenged Ministers Mahinda Samarasinghe and G.L. Peiris to an open debate to make people aware about the real consequences of the UNHRC session.

“The UNHRC resolutions are not against the country or our army. Resolutions are against the government. This is why the Government was attempting to protect and strengthen it by deceiving the public. I’m ready to tell the people the truth behind this façade and to show them that it was the government that had betrayed the country and its people,” Kiriella told a news conference today.

He charged that the government was attempting to gain sympathy from the people in the guise of showing that the UNHRC resolutions were being brought against the country and not against them so that they could turn it to their advantage during the upcoming elections. (LSP)
