Colombo, 14 December, ( A local legislator Jeyeraj Fernandopulle said in parliament on Thursday that the government thoroughly condemns the facts stated by the British High Commissioner at the Dudley Senanayake commemoration oration.

The Minister replying to a query made in this regard by JVP parliamentarian Wimal Weerawansa also said the British High Commissioner has no right to meddle in the internal political affairs of the country.

Mr. Weerawansa inquired on the measures to be taken against the High Commissioner for making a statement in contrary to the diplomatic norms of the country.

Member Rauf Hakeem has complained that security provided to himself and three other members who sat in the opposition has been reduced from yesterday. Minister Fernandopulle responding to this accusation said the security entitled to a party leader has been provided to Mr. Hakeem as well. The protection provided to an ordinary parliamentarian has been provided to the three other defected MPs.
