Prof. Rajeeva Wijesinghe queries as to why Sri Lanka was being persecuted

Jun 16, 2011 11:53:58 AM - itnnews.lk

Parliamentarian Prof. Rajeeva Wijesinghe has queried as to why Sri Lanka was being persecuted for having got rid of one of the most dangerous terrorist outfits in the world. In an interview with Al Jazeera Prof. Wijesinghe asked why they were being prosecuted for having rescued three hundred thousand people who were being held as hostages. Sri Lankan Liberal MP, Prof. Rajiva Wijesinha who is also the Advisor on Reconciliation to the President and former Secretary of the Human Rights Ministry, emphasized the fact that segments of the international media not only pre-judged but also distorted the issue considering neither the technical analysis provided by the Sri Lankan experts nor the possibility that the material may have been subject to manipulation. In response to a question by the Al-Jazeera News Anchor Parliamentarian Prof. Wijesinghe questioned as to why concern was only being raised about the alleged death of civilians during the war while the international community turned a blind eye to similar incidents in other parts of the world.
