Bahu goes to HRC

28 December 2010 07:36 am - 58     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


New Left Front Leader Dr. Wickramabahu Karunaratne today lodged a complaint at the Human Rights Commission alleging that that he and his party members were attacked at the airport earlier this month after he arrived in the island from the UK.

Dr. Karunaratne said that his right as a Sri Lankan citizen to enter the country had been violated when he was assaulted on his return from the United Kingdom. “I will pursue the matter further,” he said. 

Wickramabahu said that though he had complained to the authorities no action had been taken so far. “I complained to the IGP and the DIG of the air port police, they agreed to provide me and my party members with security but they have done nothing so far,” he said.

Dr. Wickramabahu was attacked at the airport after he returned from London after allegedly attending a LTTE (Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam) Mahaveer Day celebration in London were he made a speech at the event.  (Nabeela Hussain)

    adahan Tuesday, 28 December 2010 08:44 AM

    His side of the story must be heard to pass a judgement without wildly casting remarks. What we see here is prejudice and bias reactions.

    Ahmed Tuesday, 28 December 2010 08:44 AM

    Don't worry young man, you will be named as the next NOBLE Prize Winner.

    Keep it up for job well done.


    buriyani baba Tuesday, 28 December 2010 08:44 AM

    Raju Tuesday, 28 December 2010 08:46 AM

    can't he be charged as a traiter?

    Rupasinghe Tuesday, 28 December 2010 08:48 AM

    This kind of useless buggers must not allow to live in SL. Useless to the country, and useless for even himself. Public money spent for educate this kind of people is an utter wastage.

    shameer Tuesday, 28 December 2010 08:46 AM

    Potta Harry Tuesday, 28 December 2010 09:20 AM

    Bandaraa. Tuesday, 28 December 2010 09:25 AM


    spark Tuesday, 28 December 2010 09:38 AM

    When all logic is lost in the argument, the only thing left is branding as traitor and waving the patriotic flag. The Taliban does this in Afganistan because of their ignorance and low level thinking capabilities and education level, it is a matter of concern whether the sinhalese also fall into this same grade.

    spark Tuesday, 28 December 2010 09:43 AM

    Guys like you also did it in 1977 and 1983 to the innocent tamils and now you know the repercussions of a strong and powerful tamil diaspora kicking at this country from all corners. Wake up sinhalese before it is too late. Chaps like Wickremabahu Karunaratne are the only few peaceful sinhalese who are trying to bridge the gap of racism between the sinhalese and tamils.

    S.Dilruk Tuesday, 28 December 2010 09:43 AM

    I wonder why this traitoer is still stay free. He must put behind bars for life time. He's a terrorist that still want to ruin our motherland.

    spark Tuesday, 28 December 2010 09:46 AM

    It just shows the level of racism the sinhalese have. Surprising from a community who are after all historically products of dravidian settlements.

    spark Tuesday, 28 December 2010 09:48 AM

    It goes the same for you...when the country has racist bigots like you, this country will never see logic or prosper for decades.

    Shane Tuesday, 28 December 2010 09:54 AM

    oh.. how innocent tamil tiger are u ?

    pd Tuesday, 28 December 2010 09:53 AM

    it is not racism to attack a idiot like this who insulted da sinhalese in general & insighting violence. whan LTTE supporter still ask fr eelam & divide a country is it not racism

    Hasiya Tuesday, 28 December 2010 10:19 AM

    typical LTTE thinking...

    Dham Tuesday, 28 December 2010 10:27 AM

    Please cancel his citizenship rights

    Nilantha Tuesday, 28 December 2010 10:24 AM

    Yes he is trying to bridge the gap... the gap between International LTTEs and innocent Tamils in Sri Lanka.

    Potta Harry Tuesday, 28 December 2010 10:31 AM

    Looks like all the party members have come along with Bahu to made the complaint.

    Yehiya-Doha Tuesday, 28 December 2010 10:34 AM

    Its shows no law & order in Sri lanka. If Dr. Bahu violated any law can punish through law.

    Duma Tuesday, 28 December 2010 10:31 AM

    Oh poor innocent little tiger. Cry and Cry one day you can still Cry

    Amarapala Tuesday, 28 December 2010 10:55 AM

    Sumal Tuesday, 28 December 2010 11:08 AM

    He is the only politician did not change his policy for last 50 years.

    Rupasinghe Tuesday, 28 December 2010 11:14 AM

    How do you know my level of education?

    Kumudini Tuesday, 28 December 2010 11:16 AM


    Thilina Tuesday, 28 December 2010 11:25 AM

    There is law and order in Sri Lanka. That's why he has been able to live in this county so far.

    Wickramanayaka Wednesday, 19 January 2011 12:31 PM

    In my opinion Dr Wickramabahu Karunaratne is an honest politician.

    nagu Tuesday, 28 December 2010 11:32 AM

    No for White washing Prabakaran and his LTTE diaspora....

    channa Tuesday, 28 December 2010 11:33 AM

    Yeah...Hang him thats the justice he will & should get.....

    channa Tuesday, 28 December 2010 11:38 AM

    Strong Tamil Terrorist Diaspora supported by UK USA who are after the LTTE votes in their countries, More like it....

    malkanthi Tuesday, 28 December 2010 11:54 AM

    Even the tamils did not vote for ' a peaceful sinhalaya like Wickremabahu Karunaratne' then, now what's the point making absurd comments??
