National Freedom Front (NFF) leader and Engineering Services & Housing, Construction Minister Wimal Weerawansa says he will continue his fast unto death against the UN and will not stop even at the request of the President.
 
Weerawansa has stated, “Only Ban Ki Moon can stop this. The UN Colombo representative and Moon is responsible for my death if I die.”
 
Weerawansa began his fast three days ago opposite the UN Country office in Colombo demanding that UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon abolish a three member panel which was believed to be an investigative body.

Issuing a statement, Weerawansa said the UN Secretary General took this unilateral action without the sanction of the UN General Assembly and the Security Council.

"You have embarked on this unilateral decision of setting up a panel experts as a result of the instigation of those who have malice against this country. I hold you responsible for all consequences that may arise as a result of this decision," Weerawansa said.

    The man does not eat. He dies. Ban Ki Moon and and UN Colombo is responsive. Passing the buck and it is cool.

    No one can be responsible for your insane activity! This is like suicide, if the govt is concerned about suicide, let them stop it.

    upul Saturday, 10 July 2010 06:49 AM

    Does Wimal think that Ban Ki Moon will worry if he dies? He could not care less.

    Phil Saturday, 10 July 2010 07:05 AM

    Wimal sets a precedence here. Every one else will try to fast before a panel of enquiry!

    He is not aloe here. He is supported by many ministries; especially, food ministry.

    gunda Saturday, 10 July 2010 08:36 AM

    IVJ Saturday, 10 July 2010 08:40 AM

    All politicians should follow the example of Wimal. At least this way we can get rid of them all!!!!!

    DHA Saturday, 10 July 2010 08:46 AM
