Patriotic Professionals Forum to Geneva to challenge resolution against Lanka

A group led by retired Navy Chief of Staff Rear Admiral Sarath Weerasekara is scheduled to challenge UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Zeid Al Hussein’s action against Sri Lanka based on the UNHRC resolution adopted in 2015 which was co-sponsored by so called Yahapalana government to please the pro-LTTE Tamil diaspora as a political pact agreed in Singapore.


The patriotic delegation will include Dr. Nalaka Godahewa, Anuradha Yahampath and Rear Adm. (Rtd.) Mohan Wijewickreme. The team would attend the 37th session of the UN Human Rights (UNHR) Council in Geneva.

The Patriotic Professionals Forum informed  that the UNHRC resolution adopted in 2015 had been co-sponsored by the government of Sri Lanka without the knowledge and the permission of the Cabinet or the President.

Calling the co-sponsoring of the UNHRC resolution in 2015 as the biggest betrayal to the nation since 1815, Rear Admiral Weerasekera stressed that legal action should be taken against everyone who was behind the betrayal.  He said the pro-LTTE Tamil diaspora spent a lot of money on some politicians in Canada and the UK and therefore they were supporting their stance whether it was right or wrong.

Weerasekera invited the Sri Lankans living in other parts of the world to get together and defeat the attempts to divide the country.

Rear Admiral Weerasekara attended to the UNHRC sessions in several occasions under the banner of Global Sri Lankan Forum, GSLF prior of formation of the Patriotic Professionals Forum. The GSLF represented the gobal patriotic Sri Lankans in the UNHRC and submitted several academic reports to justify the unjust of the UNHRC Resolution adopted in 2015 against Sri Lanka.
