Those who committed war crimes have now become the ‘champions’ who attempt to act as guardians of human rights, former Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa says.
He also pointed out those who endorsed to the LTTE are now with the Tamil National Alliance (TNA). “These are the kind of people who raise their voice to safeguard human rights now,” he said while addressing a gathering held in Colombo on Monday.
He also slammed the UK’s PM for turning a blind eye to the alleged war crimes committed by the British soldiers, while unnecessary attempting to interfere into internal affairs of Sri Lanka.
Rajapaksa further stressed that the role of the Defence Ministry of a country should be to convey the message in order to ensure the reputation of the country in terms of human rights situation, rather taking steps to make the situation even worse.
