Million signatures to denounce Fonseka’s statement

A collection of signatures for a petition with one million signatures from the public organized by the Desha Hitaishi Jathika Vyaparaya at Provincial level was launched yesterday under the auspices of Ven. Elle Gunawansa Thera, the initiator of the program and President of the Desha Hithaishee Vyaparaya.

The petition is to protest against and to denounce the treacherous and irresponsible declaration of Retired General Fonseka alleging that the heroic war heroes of the motherland on the directives from Defence Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa gunned down the terrorists who came to surrender with white flags in the final phase of the humanitarian operation to free the Tamil community from the ruthless clutches of the LTTE terrorists.

The petition was addressed to Philip Alston, United Nations’ Special rapporteur on Extra Judiciary or Arbitrary Execution, United Nations’ Human Right Council, UNO, Geneva with the objective of shedding light over the baseless and revengeful allegations made against the country’s heroic forces and to educate the international community over the authentic and genuine nature of the Humanitarian Operations of the Sri Lankan Forces.

A number of political leaders, scholars, leading professionals and a large number of members of the public participated.
