Premadasa opposes UN Expert Panel

[TamilNet, Thursday, 15 July 2010, 09:03 GMT]
UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon has no authority to appoint an Expert Panel to inquire into war crimes and human rights violations, said Sajith Premadasa, Hambantota district parliamentarian of the main opposition United National Party (UNP). The son of former president, aspiring to become the next leader of the UNP said the international community was exploiting the situation created by the irresponsible governance by Rajapaksa government, while addressing a media briefing held at the office of the Leader of the Opposition Wednesday.

The UN Secretary General is only an employee of a international organization, according to Mr. Premadasa.

Mr. Ban Ki Moon has no authority to take any decision regarding Sri Lanka, which is a sovereign state, he said adding that the UN has no authority to interfere in the internal affairs of Sri Lanka. The international community should bear this in mind before taking any decision on Sri Lanka, Premadasa warned.

The Government of Sri Lanka could stop the interference of the world countries if it acts with responsibility, he further said.
