OISL report will be released in Sept

unThe UN Under-Secretary General for Political Affairs, Jeffrey Feltman, assured the North’s chief minister, C V Wigneswaran during the meeting in Jaffna on 02 March 2015, that the OHCHR Investigation on Sri Lanka would definitely be released in September.

The Chief Minister Mr. C.V. Wigneswaran, expressing the disappointment felt by Tamil People and the Northern Provincial Council, over the deferral of the UN Report said that Feltman asked questions regarding the significance and meaning of bringing a resolution on genocide. In reply the CM said, ” We also  helped the formation of the Government. But after assuming the power, Tamil people were abandoned. The government which promised to evacuate the Army and resettle the people, had cheated us. This document illustrates the feelings of our people, and that the government’s statement that the military would not be removed from the Tamil areas also caused the Tamil people significant distress Mr. Wigneswaran said. “It is on that basis that they should take this document. They should not take it as racist,” he added, in an apparent reference to comments by Prime Minister, Ranil Wickremasinghe that the resolution was “racist”.

Mr. Feltman in reply said that only 2 months have passed after new Government was formed. Finding immediate solutions is impossible. Hence 6 months time was granted .However when the 29th UNHRC sessions are held in September, the report will be definitely tabled he assured.
