British MP calls for global arrest warrant against Gota

Leader of the Liberal Democrats Sir Ed Davey stated in the House of Commons that an international arrest warrant should be issued on President Gotabaya Rajapaksa and his “cronies”, foreign media reports said.

“The horrible state of affairs in Sri Lanka has been caused by the corruption of the Rajapaksa Authorities, tax cuts, skyrocketing defence expenditure and draconian police powers,” he was quoted by the media.

Talking within the House of Commons, Davey instructed that the UK works with worldwide companions for a full financial and political resolution to “assist the democrats in Sri Lanka,” which incorporates the issuance of an arrest warrant.

 “Can we start with an economic package with the IMF and others so we can give immediate support and can that be followed and included with a political package which includes an international arrest warrant for President Rajapaksa and his cronies,” he queried.

He also requested for the package to include the protection of human rights of everyone in the country, including Tamil and Muslim minorities.-
