JVP claims they opposed UNHRC resolution
The JVP says his faction had always opposed the co-sponsoring of the United Nations Human Rights Council resolution 30/1 on Sri Lanka.
Speaking during a media briefing in Colombo today, Propaganda Secretary of the JVP Parliamentarian Vijitha Hearth said when the resolution was presented to the council in September 2015, his party opposed the move claiming Sri Lanka cannot achieve a favourable outcome by agreeing to work with the United States on human rights concerns.
Minister of Foreign Relations Dinesh Gunawardena today formally informed the United Nations Human Rights Council that Sri Lanka is withdrawing from co-sponsoring Resolution 40/1 of March 2019 on ‘Promoting reconciliation, accountability and human rights in Sri Lanka.’
However, Parliamentarian Vijitha Hearth said although Sri Lanka has withdrawn from the process of co-sponsoring the resolution, the 30/1 resolution is still operative under the Human Rights Council.
He said the government must present another resolution and terminate the agreement altogether.

Come on JVP do not play for the gallery to get cheap popularity. JVP was all the time supporting every foolish move of Yaha Palanaya regime they never protested. JVP are masters of protests and even asked urban so called farmers to wear loin cloth (Amude) and protest for increasing fertilizer prices. They never did any thing like that. Now the Gota Govt took the bold step and go to Geneva and face the UNHRC and said NO to this infamous Co sponsoring and passing death warrant of SL Resolution 30/1, JVP wanna take the credit. All of a sudden the Co-sponsoring and passing Resolution 30/1 has become a bastard!
Mr Herath is right.
SL only withdrawing from co-sponsorship of the resolution.
The resolution still remains; the UNHRC may entrust the implementation of the resolution to one or more of the other nations who sponsored the resolution to assist in the implementation of the resolution.
Special courts maybe set up in the US or UK or other countries who sponsored the resolution to try alleged war criminals.
The US moves on SL’s Army Boss is a pointer in this direction.
Keep dreaming just as your kind loves to dream and chase after mirages such as “Tamilpeelam!”
Listen brain-dead, war-crime courts are sanctioned only if and after the UN Security Council agrees unanimously to it – and with China and Russia being permanent members of it and knowing the true story behind the defeat of the LTTE terrorists and rescuing of Tamil civilians from LTTE’s human-shield (hostage taking), it ain’t going to happy anytime soon vis-a-vis Sri Lanka and her armed forces.
Of course, US and UK may set up their own “special courts” but such courts have no legitimacy in an international context. That would be like China setting up a “special court” to try US military honchos (and relevant US political machinery) for alleged war crimes in Iraq and expecting the rest of the world to go along with it!
Yo, have a sip of water, turn over and go back to sleep and have another wet-dream about your “peelam” LMAO!
This rodent and his pathetic party is an insult to basic intelligence.
He and his party propped up the former Yahapalanaya incompetent, unpatriotic, mega-crook lot for over 5 years with hardly ever uttering a word of protest even when those unpatriotic swine were selling out our country’s sovereignty to foreigners (who in turn were hand-in-glove with their own “Tamileelam lobby” in their own countries, for raking in “Tamil votes” at their own elections) and jailing our brave ranavirus who had decimated the heinous LTTE terrorists after we had suffered horrific LTTE terrorism over nearly 30 years!
Now all of a sudden, you are trying to distance yourself from that Yahapalanaya lot are you?
You pathetic conscienceless corrupt rat, I am surprised you still get ANY votes at election time!
