Youth Affairs and Skill Development Minister Dallas Alahapperuma says that he apologizes on behalf of the Cabinet for Minister Mervyn Silva’s proposal to UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navaneedan Pillay.

 

Addressing a public gathering at Maradana, Minister Mervyn Silva said that he was ready to even marry UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navaneedan Pillay.

 

This is how Minister Silva expressed his views at the meeting.

However journalists questioned again about Minister Mervin Silva’s remark during a SLFP media conference held in Colombo today.

 

Minister Alahapperuma told journalists that Minister Silva was wrong to make such a remark and termed the latter’s proposal ‘uncivilized’.
