VIDEO: Members of the UN Expert Panel were bribed

The report on Sri Lanka which was submitted by the UN Expert Panel appointed by the General Secretary Ban Ki Moon was prepared under the influence of bribes by LTTE sympathizers according to the National Freedom Front Leader, Minister Wimal Weerawansa.


He claimed that according to information that has been received, the LTTE supporting Tamil Diaspora had bribed the members of the panel using LTTE funds.


The Minister added that the UN had anticipated that President Mahinda Rajapaksa would lose in the recently concluded local government election and had delayed the presentation of the report while he questioned whether the report was trying to suggest that LTTE Leader Velupillai Prabhakaran was not a war criminal.
