Atmosphere of fear continue to stalk Lanka - Chandrika
[ Thursday, 17 September 2009, 02:22.19 AM GMT +05:30 ]
There is an atmosphere of fear and lack of freedom in Sri Lanka even after the end of war, the country's former President Chandrika Kumaratunga said.

"Even I care for my life. It is a government of my party (Sri Lanka Freedom Party) that is in power. Still even I don't feel safe," Kumaratunga, who was on a personal visit to Kerala, told reporters here. "Overall there is lack of freedom and an atmosphere of fear is prevailing in the country. Basic rights of the people and media freedom are restricted in Sri Lanka," she said.

Asked about human rights violations, she said it was not appropriate for her to comment on it. "Let the Government say," she said. She was interacting with reporters before making a courtesy call on Chief Minister V S Achuthanandan.
