Weerawansa's Party Expresses Doubts Over India's Abstention

The National Freedom Front (NFF) led by Minister Wimal Weerawansa, a constituent party of the government, today expressed doubts over India's motives in abstaining at the UNHRC vote against Sri Lanka.

"We have to closely examine why India abstained," Mohamed Muzammil,  NFF spokesman said addressing a press conference in Colombo.

"India not only voted in favour of the resolution in 2012 and 2013, they played a leading role in getting votes in favour of the US resolutions each year," Muzammil stressed.
