Why the COMIC FEAST ended faster ?

Rajapaksa had come to the venue of the fast in front of the UN`s main office on Bauddhaloka Mawatha around 4.30 pm

The minister, who had been off food and drink, including water, since Thursday morning, was getting weaker by the minute. He was put on drips on Saturday morning. Immediately on breaking the fast, he was whisked away to a hospital in an ambulance.

Weerawansa had undertaken the fast to get the UN Secretary General, Ban Ki-moon, to abolish the expert panel he had appointed to advice him on the human rights situation in Sri Lanka. But it had failed to achieve the goal as there was no indication from NewYork that Ban was softening on the controversial issue.

one wonders as to who would end up being the scapegoat of the government failure to get a better statement from the UN on Friday night - Prof. G.L. Peiris or Palitha Kohona.

A conciliatory statement from New York became very much part of Weerawansa`s exit strategy following the failure of his move to get Russia to make a commitment. Though Russia had earlier made it clear that it was against the UN panel on Sri Lanka it acted prudently during the fast and refused to play to the gallery of the drama that was being enacted. The anticipated court order to remove Wimal from the site too never came.

International Court charges Sudan president with genocide

The International Criminal Court has charged Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir with three counts of genocide in Darfur, a move that will pile further diplomatic pressure on his isolated regime.

Four months ago an appeals panel at the world`s first permanent war crimes tribunal ruled that judges made an error in law when they refused last year to indict al-Bashir on international law`s gravest charge.

Prosecutors then filed their case again and on Monday judges issued an arrest warrant charging al-Bashir with three counts of genocide.
