As an estimated 8000 protestors gathered outside Marlborough House to demonstrate against Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa, it was reported that inside, British Prime Minister David Cameron also discussed the issue of war crimes with Rajapaksa.

The Prime Minister’s spokesman Craig Oliver told Channel 4 that,
“The Prime Minister raised the issue of making sure that allegations of war crimes in Sri Lanka were properly investigated”.
Earlier, reports from “senior  sources” to The Times indicated that the British Prime Minister would also warn Rajapaksa of potential boycott of the 2013 CHOGM, currently scheduled to be held in Colombo, unless there was speedier action on issues such as demilitarisation and devolving power.

Meanwhile, Sri Lankan Presidential spokesperson Bandula Jayasekara told the Daily Mirror that a “cordial” meeting on “development in the country” was held, and told the Colombo Gazette that details of the discussion were not yet available.
