The Defence Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa has accused the British Prime Minister David Cameron of being influenced by the “LTTE rump”.
Gotabhaya said that Cameorn was playing politics in Sri Lanka in order to ‘soothe’ UK-based organisations, such as the Global Tamil Forum, the British Tamils Forum and Tamils against Genocide.
The president’s brother further said that Cameron’s threat of moves for an international investigation at the UN Human Rights Council will not be successful as other influential countries, such as Russia, China and Cuba will not support it.
He also accused Britain of harbouring ‘terrorists’ and that the political establishment in the UK is working closely with the ‘LTTE rump’, citing former MP Joan Ryan as an example. Joan Ryan is an adviser for the Global Tamil Forum.
