Chair of All Party Parliamentary Group For Tamils, Lee Scott says no meeting has been arranged with Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisena.
“It has been brought to my attention that there have been reports in the media that the new Sri Lankan President Sirisena is holding a meeting with the APPGT. This is not so, no such meeting has been arranged, and in my capacity as Chair of APPGT I am not attending.” Lee Scott MP said.
“I believe that with the deferral of the International and Independent Enquiry report from March until September; and the forthcoming elections in Sri Lanka in June, we should wait to see the results and recommendations of these. I would also wish to see a positive demonstration of the actions to be taken which we have long requested before any future meeting can be considered.” he further said.
