Dec 30, Colombo: Sri Lanka's major Tamil political party, the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) will make representations to the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) in Geneva during the March sessions next year.
TNA Spokesperson, parliamentarian Suresh Premachandran told the media that the party at its recent meeting in Vavuniya has discussed the measures to counter the government's alleged attempts to cover up several issues before the international community.
He explained that the government has failed to respect the resolutions adopted at the UNHRC in 2012 and 2013 on addressing post war issues and implementing the recommendations of the Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission (LLRC).
He charged the government of trying to distract the international community with its census on human and material losses caused due to the conflict and said as a result, the Northern Provincial Council, will conduct a separate census.
According to Premachandran, the TNA will also brief the US delegation headed by US Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asian Affairs Nisha Desai Biswal scheduled to visit Sri Lanka next month.
