Weerawansa calls for protest against British High Commission

[TamilNet, Thursday, 02 December 2010, 19:27 GMT]
Blaming the British government for 'failing' to provide 'adequate security' to the visiting Sri Lankan president Mahinda Rajapaksa, a minister in the Rajapaksa's cabinet Wimal Weerawansa Thursday called for a protest in front of the British High Commission in Colombo on Friday. In July 2010, minister Weerawansa staged 'devil dance' in front of the UN office in Colombo demanding the UN to dissolve the expert panel announced to investigate allegations of war crimes and human rights violations in the island. The protest against the UN turned violent and Sri Lankan Defence Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa went to the extent of threatening the police officers who were protecting the UN office from the violent protesters.

Mr. Weerawanse, who was formerly the propaganda secretary of the Sinhala extremist JVP has been protesting against the West since he launched protests against Norway which facilitated the peace talks between the Government of Sri Lanka and the LTTE.

His splinter group, the 'National Freedom Front', is a constituent of the ruling United Peoples Freedom Alliance (UPFA).
