A group of British Conservative MPs including Liam Fox who was the architect of the bi-partition agreement with the then PA government and the UNP, is expected to visit Jaffna to monitor the current situation in the peninsula especially on the alleged military presence, Presidential Advisor Arun Tambimuttu said yesterday.
Mr. Tambimuttu said the MPs had responded positively to an invitation they extended during a meeting held with them in London recently. Mr. Tambimuttu said he and UPFA national List MP Dr. Rajeewa Wijesinghe were among those who met them.
He said the ten MPs – David Amess, Guto Bebb, Nick de Bois, Alun Cairns, Alan Duncan, Liam Fox, Sheryll Murray, Richard Ottaway, Andrew Turner and James Wharton – were concerned about reports of heavy military presence in the North. (Yohan Perera)
