Sri Lanka's mission in Ottawa said in a statement that Canadian Tamil MP of the New Democratic Party, Rathika Sitsabaiesan was attempting to embarrass the Sri Lankan Government by claiming she was subject to 'political intimidation'.

Earlier this month Sitsabaiesan, who made a personal visit to her native Northern Province, said she was subject to political intimidation following reports of Sri Lankan authorities allegedly placing her under house arrest.

Issuing a statement regarding the false reports, the Sri Lankan High Commission in Ottawa said the media publicity in Sri Lanka and Canada on her private visit created much controversy that needs to be clarified.
