The Joint Opposition (JO) will press the Government this week to withdraw or annul the Resolution that it jointly signed and co-sponsored with the United States on Sri Lanka.

“We will press the Government to withdraw the Resolution as it is based on the war crime charges where the numbers of those killed have been found to be grossly inaccurate, JO Leader and Colombo District MP Dinesh Gunawardena told Ceylon Today last night.

He also said, it was based on these false figures that the United Nations Human Rights Commission (UNHRC) also acted……against Sri Lanka, adding that the Government should move in rapidly to correct the situation.

The TNA also went to world capitals and alleged that there were over 40,000 dead when British Conservative politician Lord Naseby, who has done a detailed study, has found that the correct number was well less than 7,000.

So, the numbers are totally wrong as touted by the international NGO lobby, the Diaspora and the TNA and there is not even a whimper about the inaccuracy of these figures, Gunawardena said.

Lord Naseby has also said that Sri Lankan Army was fighting a war against the most ruthless guerilla group in the world, which was not even a conventional war and the numbers killed on both sides were soldiers and members of the LTTE where no civilians were targeted and that it is all the more reason why the Government should withdraw the Resolution, he said.

He also alleged that the Foreign Ministry has not done anything to even collect the reports that Lord Naseby has done on Sri Lanka.
