The Patriotic National Movement has sent a letter to President Mahinda Rajapakse today.
The Chairman of the movement Prof. Gunadasa Amarasekara has urged President Rajapakse not to allow UN Human Rights Commissioner Navi Pillay to visit Sri Lanka.
The letter also makes reference to a previous instance where the UNHRC sent a representative to Sudan who in turn worked against the President of that country.
Meanwhile, the Ministry of External Affairs noted that the UNHRC team would only be able to visit the country upon having exclusively obtained the consent of the Sri Lankan Government.
The Secretary of the Ministry Karunathilaka Amunugama speaking to our news team also noted that the clauses of the UN resolution against Sri Lanka can not be implemented without the government’s consent.
He added that there has been no decision taken as yet regarding the impending visit by a UN delegation.
We spoke to Minister of Power and Energy Patali Champika Ranawaka regarding the actions of the UN Human Rights Commissioner.
The Minister added that there is a step by step process to destabilize the country.
