A WikiLeaks entry from June 12, 2007 shows the then opposition leader, Ranil Wickremesinghe, asking Japanese diplomat Yasushi Akashi to suspend economic assistance to Sri Lanka at the time.
In response to a private exhortation by then opposition leader Wickremesinghe for Japan to suspend its economic assistance, Akashi told Wickremesinghe, and later reiterated publicly that the Sri Lankan people should not be punished “for acts of commission and omission by their leaders.”
In 2007, when Ranil Wickremesinghe decided to put the party before the country, a national from another country looked into the well-being of the people of this country.
With all that is happening, at present we can only hope that he and others are not employing the same tactics of putting himself and his party ahead of the needs of the people.
