No one has right to discredit democratically elected Government of Sri Lanka over terrorism issue - Sri Lanka Consul General

Sumane Liyanaarachchi - Sydney

Sydney, 03 May, ( Government of Sri Lanka has registered with New South Wales parliament its deep concern over using the floor of NSW parliament for a book presentation which is to be held on next Tuesday by the Centre for Just Peace and Democracy ( CJPD) for promoting terrorism by discrediting government of Sri Lanka on current armed conflict between Government of Sri Lanka and the LTTE,

We have already contacted the speaker of the NSW Parliament and I have written to both the Premier of New South Wales and the Speaker expressing our government’s concern over the issue, Gothami Indikadahena, the Sri Lankan Consul General in Sydney said.

When I contacted the parliament I was told that this event should be sponsored by a Member of NSW parliament otherwise rooms of parliament are not issued to the people for private activities, Indikadahena further said.

Our Government works on international norms and conducts. That is why we have great respect from Australian general public. I understand that our case has been supported by general public.

Asian Tribune learnt that many New South Wales constituents have already contacted their respective Members of Parliaments asking them to stop happening this meeting in NSW parliament as the scheduled event can be used by LTTE to mislead international community that they have support from NSW parliament.
