Apr 07, Colombo: The National Freedom Front (NFF), a coalition partner of the ruling alliance warned the government not to get caught in an "international trap" launched by the enemy forces in the guise of an international investigation called by the resolution adopted at the UN last month.
Addressing the media, the Media Spokesperson of the NFF, Mohammed Muzammil raised doubts over India's motive behind its decision to abstain from voting at the UN Human Rights Council for the resolution.
He said although the government has rejected to agree for an international investigation into alleged human rights violations during the seven years of the three-decade long war, plans are underway to make the government to agree for such an investigation.
He accused that India is behind such plans and India has used its intelligence agents within the government to convince the administration to allow the UN to conduct an international investigation.
Muzammil recalled that India was instrumental in getting the previous resolutions adopted in the UN in 2012 and 2013.
"Not only India voted for those resolutions, India also tried hard to getting other countries to vote for the resolutions," he noted.
The NFF spokesman said India abstained this time to get the government to implement the 13th Amendment to devolve power.
He warned that if Sri Lanka agrees with India and falls into India's trap, the other countries which supported Sri Lanka such as Russia, China and Pakistan will distance themselves away from Sri Lanka.
He asked all Sri Lankan people who love the country to unite to defeat India's attempt to make Sri Lanka the "Tear Drop of Indian Ocean".
