During the party leaders’ meeting this morning, it was decided to debate in parliament on the 17th and 18th of this month, whether Navi Pillai’s Committee is allowed to enter the country to investigate alleged human rights violations.

However the JVP has decided to add amendments to this proposal which had already been submitted to parliament with signatures of nine ruling party MPs.

JVP Leader Anura Kumara Dissanayake stated that the amendment papers with six changes have been handed over to the Secretary General of parliament today.

A vote will be taken after the 17th and 18th of June during which parliament would debate the government’s proposal on the UN issue.

However the UNP stated that it will announce whether the party will participate in the debate after its parliamentary group meets on the 17th of June.

Meanwhile TNA MP M.A. Sumandiran who participated in the party leaders’ meeting today said his party’s parliamentary group will meet soon to take a decision regarding their participation in this debate.

He also said that the government checking the parliament’s opinion regarding this issue is an attempt by them to humiliate the parliament as the government has already declared its objections to the UN Committee.
