Flu prevented me from heading to Brussels - Samarasinghe

    Is it that the Minister is avoiding just the opening session or is it that he is avoiding the whole Session? If it is the latter it does not speak well of SL!

    I am glad he didn`t go. It saves the other ppl catching the flu.

    The way MR is handing foreign policy - Very soon many in this govt will not only get the flu but also stomoach upset (bada eliya), when they have to face the world.

    And we were told what other countries think doesnt matter! :) :)

    Mahinda is an honest and intelligent minister and he knows how to face problems. It is clear both GOSL and LTTE violate HR in Sri Lanka. But as a ligitamate govt GOSL needs to protect HR of all civilians. LTTE has no such responsibility as it is a ruthless terrorist organization.

    [Human Rights Minister Mahinda Samarasinghe yesterday said he decided against attending today`s much awaited opening session of the Development Affairs Committee of the European Parliament in Brussels, on medical advice]

    The only country which has a full time minister for HR is not represented at the opening sesssion.

    This itself points to the fact that GoSL is responsible for over 10,000 abductions, extra judicial killings, and disappearances. Not to mention the violation of its opponents` rights like Mangala, Sripathy, Tiran,

    Slanka is has become farce/freek within the IC.
