“SL government conceals true picture of “Vanni safe zone”-UNP charges

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 13 May 2009, 20:49 GMT]
Dr.Jayalath Jayewardene, Deputy Secretary of the main United National Party (UNP) and parliamentarian made a scathing attack on the government led by President Mahinda Rajapakse that it is rejecting all statements made by the United Nations regarding the immense sufferings of Tamil people trapped in Vanni region without verifying the true picture. The government is committing blatant treachery by concealing the true situation in Vanni, he added at a press briefing held Tuesday in Colombo.

“It is sad to note that a motion is to be brought against Sri Lanka in the United Nations Human Rights Council meeting. This situation has arisen due to the blatant violation of human rights by the government of President Mahinda Rajapakse. The government should take full responsibility to the present sufferings of the people.

“The government has denied the allegations made by the UN spokesman Gordon Wise on the military attack targeting ‘safe zone’ and the damages caused to lives of civilians. But the rejection of the government that there is no truth in the UN spokesman’s statement cannot be accepted”, Dr Jayalath Jayewardene point out.

“It should be accepted that the ‘safe zone’ declared by the government is not for civilians, because attacks are carried out on civilians continuously. But the government is spreading false information that no civilian is killed in the military operation. Loss of lives daily takes place in the ‘safe zone’ declared by the government, according to reports from Vanni,” Dr .Jayalath Jayewardene said.
