Joint opposition member Wimal Weerawansa says the war crimes court will be used to take action against the soldiers and former President who saved the country from terrorism.
Prince Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein will visit the North during his visit to Sri Lanka which begins on Saturday February 6.
Weerawansa said that while the background is being set to betray the country to the international community the “spineless” Government is also attempting to end the political journey of former President Mahinda Rajapaksa.
He said that the arrest of Yoshitha Rajapaksa and the questioning of Shiranthi Rajapaksa is part of the attempt to end Mahinda Rajapaksa’s political future.
Weerawansa said the public must rise against the Government for the manner in which it is attacking the former President. (Colombo Gazette)
