Danish foreign minister’s personal representative and human rights ambassador Hans Grunnet and deputy head of mission of the royal Danish embassy Danny Annan met Western Peoples Front Leader and Civil Monitoring Commission Convener Mano Ganesan MP today evening (22nd April) at the Danish consulate in Colombo, Media communique issued from Ganesan’s office said.

Discussions centered on the prevailing human rights and political conditions in the country. CMC Convener Mano Ganesan told the diplomats that now the government appears to be caught in between the deplorable abuse reality and subsequent international reactions.
