Gajendrakumar Ponnambalam, leader of the Tamil National People’s Front and a member of parliament, has said that the UN Human Rights Council report will not be in favour to Sri Lanka this time.
He was speaking to the media after a meeting with UN Resident Representative in Sri Lanka Hana Singer in Jaffna.
We have talked about political issues and human rights issues. We have also talked about the actions of the Tamil parties in accepting the 13th Amendment and the fact that it is taking place contrary to the mandate given by the Tamil people.
We have reported on the Sri Lankan Navy’s inaction when Indian fishermen engage in overfishing and the vicious retaliation against women involved in Tamil national politics.
We have also informed her about the situation in the South and the activities of the government. We had expressed our strong criticisms regarding the last report.
He had said that the government should give them a chance as it was new to power. But this time the report was said to be strong, he added.
