Namal slams Canada’s ‘double standards and hidden agendas’

Namal slams Canada’s ‘double standards and hidden agendas’

 

MP Namal Rajapaksa has condemned the recent sanctions imposed by Canada against four Sri Lankan state officials, including two former Presidents, over alleged human rights violations during Sri Lanka’s civil war.


While acknowledging that Canada has a sovereign right to decide such matters, the former Minister expressed his dissent towards the apparent ‘double standards’ and ‘hidden agendas’ adopted by Canada when assessing the facts in this regard.


“The LTTE recruited child-soldier, indiscriminately killed civillians and govt officials from all ethnicities.#LKA endured this atrocity for 3 decades”, Rajapaksa tweeted.


On 10 January, the Canadian government imposed sanction on former Presidents Gotabaya and Mahinda Rajapaksa, Staff Sergeant of Sri Lanka Army Sunil Ratnayake and Lieutenant Commander Chandana Prasad Hettiarachchi over alleged human rights violations during Sri Lanka’s civil war, which lasted from 1983 to 2009.
