Pillay told people who spoke to her threatened


The Tamil National Alliance (TNA) has told the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay that several people who spoke to her during her visit to the North have been threatened.
TNA Chief Ministerial candidate for the Northern elections C.V. Wigneswaran said that the TNA communicated this to her when they had a meeting at the Cinnamon Lakeside hotel today.

Pillay had visited the North this week and met several civilians including relatives of those reported missing during and soon after the war.

The TNA had briefed Pillay on the current situation in the north and expressed confidence that she will issue a balanced report at the end of her visit.

Wigneswaran also said that Pillay was told that the government had failed to abide by the agreement reached between President Mahinda Rajapaksa and UN Secretary General Ban ki-moon.

Pillay had told the TNA delegation during their 45 minute meeting that she had received a lot of information during her Sri Lanka visit. (Colombo Gazette)
