Tamil American Peace Initiative Condemns Minister-Lead Violence against UN Offices in Colombo.

Published On Friday, July 9, 2010
The Sri Lankan Government’s decision to lead violent protests against United Nations Development Program offices in Colombo should be of serious concern to the United States. In response to the UN’s creation of a panel to investigate human rights violations in Sri Lanka, hundreds of protesters were led by Housing Minister Wimal Weerawansa to barricade the UN office with the employees inside. The protests represented such a danger for the humanitarian staff assigned to Sri Lanka that the UN has decided to close the office and recall its top representative.
