Colombo (News 1st): Parliamentarian Dinesh Gunawardena raised questions about the proposals presented by Geneva relating to Sri Lanka, in parliament today (March 6). Dinesh Gunawardena noted that the Human Rights Commission will convene in Geneva and Sri Lanka is in a very difficult position due to several agreements signed by the government.

He wanted to know what steps the government has taken at a time where Lord Naseby of the British Parliament has revealed that the proposal put forward by Britain contains false information.

The leader of the house Minister Lakshman Kiriella noted that in the years 2012, 2013 and 2014 during Mahinda Rajapaksa’s government, 3 proposals presented by the UNHRC against Sri Lanka were passed.

“If he was in power in 2015, they would have imposed sanctions on us, but, fortunately for us, the good governance government came into power, managed to avoid sanctions, saved Mahinda Rajapaksa from the electric chair and ran the country for 4 years,” said Minister Kiriella. He requested support and not to create unnecessary problems.
