* Sri Lanka's main opposition to raise privilege issue in parliament and complain to the IPU
Sat, Apr 19, 2014, 09:46 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Apr 19, Colombo: Sri Lanka's main opposition United National Party (UNP) says the party will raise a privilege issue in parliament next week and complain to the Inter Parliamentary Union (IPU) about the attack on several UNP MPs in Hambantota during an inspection tour.

Chief Opposition Whip, John Amaratunga has said the attack on the opposition MPs would be informed to the IPU since the international community including the Commonwealth Union should be aware of the attack.

The UNP MPs who were attacked allegedly by governing party mobs when they visited the Mattala Airport and Hambantota Port will also raise privilege issues in parliament against the failure of the police to provide them with security.

The UNP MPs will individually table privilege motions against the Hambantota police HQI and ASP for failing to take any action when they were pushed, abused, threatened and pelted with stones, rotten eggs and tomatoes.
