Will not resign due to charges from Canada on Sri Lanka; a statement from Commonwealth SG

Sunday, 13 October 2013 - 01:11 PM

Commonwealth Secretary-General Kamlesh Sharma has shrugged off a personal attack from a Canadian politician.

Earlier this week, Commonwealth Secretary-General Kamlesh Sharma was accused by Canadian Senator Hugh Segal of acting as a stooge for the Sri Lankan authorities defending their every mistake.

The summit is being boycotted only by Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, who has been critical of the Sri Lankan government.

 

Harper is on record as complaining that the Sri Lankan Government has failed to uphold the Commonwealth’s core values.

In London, the Commonwealth Secretariat has been much more guarded in its comments about what has been going on in Sri Lanka.

 

A Secretariat spokesman also said the Secretary-General had no intention of stepping down following critical comments of Canadian officials.
