No mention of Nambiar in UN report: ICP

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 14 November 2012, 22:57 GMT]
“It is not at all clear that this long delayed Petrie report represents any more serious approach by Ban's UN on the ongoing issues in Sri Lanka,” opined Inner City Press (ICP) on Wednesday after the UN released the Petrie report in which portions were blacked-out or redacted. The ICP said it did a fast word search and found that while the name of John Holmes – who defended his and the UN's actions on Tuesday – appeared in the report, UN envoy Vijay Nambiar did not.

When the ICP questioned the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon's spokesman Martin Nesirky, he did not explain the redactions, a news report by the ICP said.

There was no answer from the UN spokesman to the question by ICP whether Mr Nambiar would be part of Ban's new senior advisory team.

“After being excluded from a UN memorial service Wednesday morning after the Petrie photo op, Inner City Press spotted Nambiar leaving that closed session,” the ICP report further observed.
