US MPs should not to fall prey to falls information - GL
Prof. G.L. Peiris has told the US ambassador to Sri Lanka Ms. Patrician Butanis that he is of the belief that the US embassy in Colombo and the US State Dept will take action to educate the US Senators and members of the Congress not to fall prey to false information sent out about Sri Lanka.
Ms. Butanis was called to the foreign ministry by the foreign minister
to discuss about reports with regard to a letter sent to the US
Secretary of state Hilary Clinton by some members of the US senate and
the congress about Sri Lanka.
Furthermore the govt has launched an investigation in to certain people
in various fields, who has provided false information to the US embassy
in Sri Lanka against Sri Lanka and the defence forces. Former US
ambassador Robert Blake has said in a report sent to the State Dept that
the number of people providing information about Sri Lanka has
increased and he has also said in the same report that some person who
had an interview with defence secretary Gotabhaya Rajapakse also allowed
the US officials to listen to it. By now all information about four
Tamil politicians and two activists of certain NGOs, who have been
identified as informers, has been revealed.
Prof. G.L. Peiris has explained to the US ambassador in Colombo Ms.
Butanis that all information provided by these people are absolutely
false. The US embassy in Colombo has sent over 1,700 secret cables to
the US about Sri Lanka.
