Tamils protest general’s posting

2012-11-09 00:00

TAMILS in South Africa are outraged at the appointment of Sri Lanka’s Major-General Shavendra Silva as Deputy Ambassador to South Africa.

SGJP secretary Preggy Padayachee said that earlier this year, Silva was removed by Louise Frechette, former deputy secretary-general of the United Nations, from his post as advisor to the UN Special Advisory Group. This was in view of war crimes allegations which were levelled against him post 2009.
