Will break your bones: Lanka minister to activists
Colombo: Sri Lankan Minister Mervyn Silva has threatened to "break the bones" of three rights activists who campaigned for a US resolution at Geneva that was deemed to be anti-Colombo.
Silva`s comments were directed at activists Sunanda Deshapriya, Nimalka Fernando and Pakiasothy Saravanamuttu, Sunday Leader reported on Saturday.
Silva also claimed that it was he who forced the former convener of the Free Media Movement, Podala Jayantha, to leave Sri Lanka.
Jayantha left the country fearing for his life after he was brutally attacked. He is believed to be living in the US.
Silva accused Sri Lankan rights activists of campaigning against the country`s government at the just concluded Human Rights Council session in Geneva.
The Council passed a resolution decrying rights violations by the Sri Lankan military during the closing stages of the war that destroyed the Tamil Tigers in 2009.
