British Prime Minister David Cameron visited Jaffna today (15th) and had discussions with chief minister of the northern province CV Vigneswaran and other TNA leaders at the Public Library in Jaffna. He also met a group of women who claim their relatives disappeared during the war. The women attempted to hand over pictures of their loved ones who have been missing and petitions to British officials.
Mr. Cameron also visited a refugee camp as well as the offices of the Uthayan newspaper that was attacked by unknown groups several times.
Speaking after his tour to the North UK Prime Minister said seeing “pictures of journalists, shot and killed, on the walls and hearing stories of journalists who have disappeared long after the war has ended, that will stay with me”.
He said the Sri Lankan government “still has a chance” to take action over human and political rights that would satisfy the international community.
