The General Secretary of the ruling party, SLFP, has announced the party is to examine the resolution passed by the Northern Provincial Council (NPC) this week calling for UN investigators to be allowed access in order to collect evidence for the OHCHR Investigation into Sri Lanka (OISL).
“All provincial councils including the Northern Provincial Council have pledged to act within the Constitution of Sri Lanka," said the SLFP General Secretary, Minister Maithripala Sirisena.
"They cannot violate it," he added, reported the Daily Mirror.
“Though I’m the General Secretary, I cannot express an opinion on the resolutions. The resolutions will be submitted to the party central committee next week after which the SLFP will make known its views,” Sirisena said.
