British High Commissioner slams ‘deplorable behaviour’ of Sri Lankan MPs

Britain’s High Commissioner to Sri Lanka criticised the “deplorable behaviour” of Sri Lankan lawmakers as a second day of violence engulfed the chamber on Friday.

“Today Sri Lankans have again seen deplorable behaviour by some MPs, unbecoming of them and of their noble institution,” said James Dauris in a tweet following Friday’s violence.

“No parliament can perform its role when its own members stop it from doing so.”

The British statement comes amidst a deepening political crisis in Sri Lanka which has left Colombo in political turmoil.
