TNA raises political prisoners and land issue with Nisha Biswal

tna-nisha-meet-4The Tamil National Alliance (TNA) led by opposition leader R Sampanthan today discussed the political prisoners and Northern land issue with visiting US Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asian Affairs Nisha Desai Biswal.

TNA Parliamentarian M.A. Sumanthiran said that the implementation of the resolution on Sri Lanka adopted by the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva last year was also discussed at the meeting.

He said that the delay in implementing some clauses in the resolution was raised at the meeting and the delegation led by Biswal said that they had already raised this matter with the Government.

Biswal has told the TNA the US will help the Government meet any challenges it faces in implementing the Geneva resolution.

Meanwhile Sumanthiran said that while different views are being expressed by the Government on having foreign judges in the domestic accountability process, the TNA will wait for the various mechanisms to be implemented before commenting on it. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. srilanka government want democratic government by honest and intercrity they must do now, if not this will end with another communal problem ,srilanka it going down in economic education, culture law of the land, promise to bring all political criminal to book, but was not taken place ,prime minister is playing double game ,justice minister not a sincere person

  2. The headless TNA MPs do not still understand that the Sri Lankan Army is at war with the Tamils still. A few days back I saw a clip wherein few Tamil ladies in Vali-North begging the army personnel to allow them to go to their lands. Why should these lTamil women beg the armed forces,who are forcibly occupying their lands to allow them to go to their lands. If the present government of good governance does not feel the suffererings of these displaced people for such a long time then the TNA should not support this government.

  3. Oh what a surprise, Tamils are complaining to the foreigners :~))))

    The US is doing everything to put pressure on Sri Lanka through the UN. Meantime, its Tami puppets are doing their best to help their foreign masters. The US has been fooling the good governance leaders through the UN, at the same time it is claiming that its relationship with Sri Lanka is an all time high. The Americans are kings of double game.
