  • The MP’s presence in Parliament is questionable as he had paid tribute to an LTTE Leader who happened to be a notorious killer
  • I appeared on behalf of her at Jaffna Courts and the courts advised me to explain to her that she can have a memorial service for her son privately.

Minister Sarath Weerasekera and TNA MP M. A. Sumanthiran was engaged in a heated argument in Parliament on Saturday where Mr. Weerasekera alleged that the latter had commemorated an LTTE Leader.  


The argument flared up when Mr. Sumanthiran raised a privilege issue against the Presidential Commission on Political Victimisation whom be said had falsely accused him of evading the commission. “I was summoned to the commission several times but I sent in my response and even went before the commission once. I request the Speaker to take action against this move. Also, my parliamentary privilege is violated as the summons are being sent only in Sinhalese,” he said.  


Minister Weerasekera who responded, questioned as to how the MP could talk about parliamentary privileges when his presence in the House is questionable.
