Colombo misleads public on CFA amendments- UNP

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 01 March 2006, 03:21 GMT]
"Sri Lanka delegation to the Geneva talks has claimed that they were sucessful in amending the Cease Fire Agreement. If so the Sri Lanka Government has an obligation to disclose to the people the details of these amendments," said Colombo district parliamentarian of the United National Party (UNP), Bandula Gunawardene, in a press meet held in Colombo Wednesday.

"Sri Lanka Government told the people that its delegation is attending Geneva talks to reverse the contents of the CFA which it claimed was signed by the previous Government to assist in segmentation of the island. With Geneva talks concluded, the Government should explain how it has fulfilled its mission," Mr Gunarwardene further said.

"Reports from Geneva and the concluding statement read by the facilitators clearly indicate that the main focus of the talks was to strengthen procedures to implement the full provisions of the CFA. But the Leader of the delegation, Minister Sri pala de Silva, has grossly misled the public by asserting that the delegation has been successful in forcing amendments to the CFA.

"It is laughable that the Rajapakse Government which frightened the public of Ranil Wickremesinghe was trying to split Sri Lanka, has returned from Geneva with the CFA unchanged and after committing to fully implement its provisions," Gunawardene said.

"Sri Lankans deserve to know the truth," added Mr Gunawardene.
