Senior Advisor to the Finance Ministry Mano Tittawella, was accused in Parliament today of dictating the direction Sri Lanka should take at the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva.
Opposition Parliamentarian Wimal Weerawansa told Parliament that Tittawella had given instructions to Sri Lanka’s Ambassador in Geneva with regards to the draft Resolution which Sri Lanka cosponsored.
“How can he decide Sri Lanka’s foreign policy? Who is he? Do not let him dictate terms,” Weerawansa said in Parliament.
Mano Tittawella was part of the Sri Lankan delegation which attended the discussion on Sri Lanka in Geneva last week.
The Sri Lankan delegation was led by Foreign Minister Tilak Marapana. (Colombo Gazette)
