[TamilNet, Tuesday, 06 July 2010, 08:01 GMT]
Sri Lankan minister Wimal Weerawansa, who was opposed to the peace process, has gathered his supporters outside the UN office in Colombo at Bauddhaloka Mawatha protesting against the UN Secretary General Ban-Ki moon's move to appoint an expert panel Tuesday afternoon. The protesters have erected a temporary shed in front of the main entrance preventing the UN staff from entering the office premises and were calling the UN Secretary General to dissolve the expert panel.

The protesters have sprayed some ink to the security cameras installed in the premises. They also burnt an effigy of the Secretary General Ban Ki Moon.

Media sources in Colombo said that the UN Resident Representative in Colombo Neil Buhne had refused to comment about the protest saying that a civil commotion is taking place outside his office.
