Govt.: UN Warned Of Report Leakage

Apr 21, 2011 10:41:09 PM - thesundayleader.lk

Government was warned by the UN about the possibility of leakage of its report, which accuses the country of committing war crimes during the final offensive against LTTE, a top official has been quoted in the international media.

“The UN Secretariat told the government that it was concerned that the report might be leaked because everything leaks from the Secretariat,” Palitha Kohona, Sri Lanka’s envoy to the UN, has told PTI.

The UN has however, refuted the claim.

“We have no reason to believe that the leak came from the secretariat,” UN deputy spokesperson Farhan Haq has said.
