Tissa citing UNP-MS secret
agreement cries betrayal
Former UNP General Secretary and Health Minister Tissa Attanayake yesterday told the media in Colombo that the UNP and opposition common candidate Maithripala Sirisena had, in an undisclosed pact signed on Nov. 1, 2014, agreed to implement all UNHRC recommendations as regards Sri Lanka’s alleged war crimes and fully cooperate with the international community for that purpose.
Minister Attanayake said he had documentary proof to substantiate his claim. He distributed among journalists copies of what he called the secret agreement between Sirisena and UNP Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe. (See the image of the document.)
