The United Nations said that its Expert Panel on Sri Lanka would not meet Sri Lanka President Mahinda Rajapaksa, who is in US for a private visit, Inner City Press reports.

Responding to a question, UN Secretary General’s Spokesperson Martin Nesirky said “On your question on Sri Lanka at the briefing today: We understand the Sri Lankan President has no business scheduled at the UN. He is not set to meet any of the Panel members, nor anyone else from the Secretariat.”

Sri Lanka’s Presidential Secretariat said that President Rajapaksa left the country early Wednesday morning to the United States on a private visit.

    Wherever you run... your sins will follow you like a shadow. You can avoid UN but you have to meet consequences one day !

    Ranil Friday, 21 January 2011 10:50 AM

    It is not double game, only the inability of your leaders to challenge MR, whether you are LTTE, JVP or UNP. All are in the same boat.

    dilu Friday, 21 January 2011 11:12 AM

    why r u so hurry on asking ur past demads whn he is on super holiday in super power nation..just leave him for a while..

    Sinhalaya Friday, 21 January 2011 11:45 AM

    Yep also thanks to computers!

    Gamaya Saturday, 22 January 2011 06:34 PM

    If his visit was private, and if he needs surgery, then why did he take the GL Pieris and a team of 20???

    Our readers who comment here, defending MR think that they can fool the masses.

    Yu Hee Saturday, 22 January 2011 07:12 PM

    Next private visit will be for China.

    Udith Friday, 21 January 2011 03:05 AM

    Private visit on public funds?

    priyanka Friday, 21 January 2011 03:18 AM

    May be Ban Ki Moon should take LLRC instead of being a head of UN so he can easily please Sri Lankan president. Door is open for Ban Ki Moon for any position in Sri Lanka.

    padma Friday, 21 January 2011 03:27 AM

    Is this a rehearsal visit, fallowed former Tunisia President?

    KHKaru Friday, 21 January 2011 01:03 PM

    If you happen to meet Hillary C. please thank her on our behalf, for the nice remarks made by her recently about our country. Also, give some advice to Obama on how to jack up their sagging economy !

    TDDC Friday, 21 January 2011 03:39 AM

    Baa Boo Friday, 21 January 2011 03:51 AM

    anura Friday, 21 January 2011 04:00 AM

    this is what pakistan president did exactly while people suffer in flooding.....they went on lavish tour

    v. Stanislaus Friday, 21 January 2011 01:38 PM

    If the visit was a private one why a coterie of 20 including the Foreign Minister?

    lamaya Friday, 21 January 2011 04:03 AM

    He is not he not well!!!! He went there for a surgery! Why do our people have to be so negative and cussed about everything he does? The poor man cannot even go abroad to seek medical attention you make so many stories about him!

    AJ - DXB Friday, 21 January 2011 04:00 AM

    MR is in the US in the wrong time as President Hu Jintao is presently on a State Visit to US. All attention of the White House to the Media will be given to President Hu unless MR’s wants to prove that he can visit even US like he did in UK. UN or the AI cannot charge MR as he has two triumphs – President Hu, Sri Lanka’s ally is currently on a State tour and it will not look good to the US to arrest one of the Presidents who is an ally of China and number two is; Catherine Bragg who is currently in Sri Lanka. If something goes wrong in the US our MODAWANSA will arrest Catherine Bragg and will charge her on no grounds like what the GOSL is doing to SF. So, MR can safely return touring US.

    these all well planned and under world game. Cos they know that they will be in trap by UN panel.

    Pandula Friday, 21 January 2011 04:32 AM

    may be the UN does not discuss official matters with those on unofficial visits

    natha Friday, 21 January 2011 04:42 AM

    leaders always leader........... poor men getting poorest...........

    Thas Friday, 21 January 2011 04:44 AM

    Of course the Panel doesn't want to hear lies. You are searching for truth.
