Fonseka’s comment could restrict aid to Sri Lanka - Minister Peiris
[TamilNet, Tuesday, 22 December 2009, 12:36 GMT]
G.L.Peiris, a senior minister in the United Peoples Freedom Alliance
(UPFA) government, said Monday to Colombo media that the comments made by Sarath Fonseka about the final stages of the war may make it difficult for some officers to travel overseas for training and medical treatment while there could be restrictions on the aid provided to Sri Lanka. Minister G.L.Peiris said that the comments made by Gen (retd) Sarath Fonseka have far reaching consequences including the possibility of some of the military officers being questioned on the events and action being taken against them.
Minister Peiris made his comments as he referred to the statement by the UN Special Rapporteur on Extrajudicial, Summary or Arbitrary Executions calling the Government of Sri Lanka to provide explanations with regard to the killing of three senior LTTE cadres and their families
at the last stages of military operations.
