Sri Lankan minister calls for withdrawal of UN resolution

Sri Lanka’s Megapolis and Western Development Minister Patali Champika Ranawaka called for the withdrawal of a United Nations resolution, which mandates for a hybrid accountability mechanism for international crimes.

Addressing the Sri Lankan cabinet earlier this week Ranawaka, who heads the Sinhala extremist JHU, reportedly said “the government should also make every effort to replace the current resolution”.

Ranawaka’s comments come after he met with British FCO Minister for Asia and the Pacific, Mark Field and requested the UK government take action against Tamil activists.
