Plantation Minister Mahinda Samarasinghe yesterday said that certain Opposition elements had failed in their bid to internationalize Sarath Fonseka’s case and tarnish the country’s image referring to the complaint made to the Inter Parliamentary Union (IPU), Human Rights Committee for Parliamentarians. Reference was made in some newspapers during the weekend that the IPU will continue to follow up on the complaint made to the Human Rights Committee for Parliamentarians by some interested parties concerning Fonseka.
Minister Samarasinghe who made representation to the Committee on behalf of the Government yesterday gave a detailed description of what took place.
