* Sri Lanka has failed to fulfill pledges given to the UN - Tamil party
Mon, Jan 21, 2013, 08:59 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Jan 21, Colombo: Sri Lanka's major Tamil political party, the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) says the government has failed to honor the pledges given to the United Nations on post war reconciliation.

TNA Leader, R. Sampanthan has said that the pledge to engage in post-war reconciliation among the various ethnic communities in the country has not yet been carried out by the government.

Addressing a function in Batticaloa, Sampanthan has observed that the government had made several pledges to the UN and the international community on reconciliation in the country, and one was the demilitarization of the Northern Province.

He has pointed out that there were concerns on the resettlement of the war displaced in their original homes.

He has added that the delay in releasing or taking legal action against the Tamil political prisoners was also an issue that the government has failed to address.

According to Sampanthan, the government will have to answer about its failures at the UN Human Rights Council sessions in Geneva in March.
