UPFA suspects domestic probe will have foreign hand

G.L-PeirisThe United People’s Freedom Alliance (UPFA) suspects the proposed domestic investigation on the war will have an international involvement.

Former Foreign Minister, Professor G.L Peiris, said that a leaked UN report makes clear that the international community will be directly involved in the investigations.

“The report says the investigation will be a domestic process with foreign technical assistance,” he said at a media briefing today.

However he said the nature of foreign assistance and the responsibilities the foreign agencies will have in the process was still not clear.

The former Foreign Minister also said that the UN will lead the process and will also fund it and so this shows the process is domestic only by name.

He also raised concerns over a part of the leaked report which states that the implementing agencies will be the Sri Lankan Government and the Northern Provincial Council.

“How can the Northern Provincial Council be an implementing agency. That is not acceptable. The Northern Provincial Council had raised allegations on genocide and war crimes and those very people have now been given the right to implement the investigations process,” he said.

Professor G.L Peiris said that the entire investigations process on the war will have the involvement of the Tamil diaspora, the Tamil National Alliance and some international agencies with a hidden agenda. (Colombo Gazette)

  1. This mama’s boy was brought to school in a massive limousine, the ( Ayah ) servant woman fed him hoppers or string hoppers on the steps leading to the class, a man servant tied his shoe lases, the driver combed his hair, perhaps someone did the examinations also for him, like Namal Baby’s law degree.

  2. GL Peiris is the most idiotic foreign Minister ever appointed By Poor MR,ne never thought this Moron would ruin the Image of Sri lanka in the UN,all his
    arguments and counter arguments were all out of Place
    the Indian Foreign Minister was way ahead of sri Lankan bafoon and and he was laughing with the Asian foreign Ministers whispering that this Moron is off the rails all the time.Sir I have double econ degree with with a Law degree attached,I would have done 100times better than this old fashioned clot way past
    his a disgrace to the entire Nation.GL peiris get off the rails you are truly ruining this beautiful country you have passed your age you do not fit to International levels abloody disgrace

    1. Prof. G.L. Peiris has a phobia for everything in the country. Good governance, Ltte ,(now alive according to him ),separation, devolution of power, UNP, JVP TNA ,Ven. Sobitha Thera, India and finally President Sirisena. Mahinda Samarasinghe should be able to tell
      the people how GLP let down the country at the UN and international arena. We lost the friendship of many
      countries during his tenor as foreign minister. and as Sunimal suggested, he should retire and keep his respect. Good professors never get involved in dirty politics
