Democratic Left Front leader Vasudeva Nanayakkara yesterday demanded the resignation of Foreign Minister Managala Samaraweera citing reasons that the latter was subservient to western powers.

Addressing the media at a news conference organised by the Socialist Alliance at the Dr. N. M. Perera Centre, Naynakkara said

Samaraweera acted in a manner which was inimical to the national interest.

Nanayakka said the foreign minister should have been removed much earlier. Nanayakkara also criticised Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe for misleading the masses claiming that there would be no foreign judges to investigate alleged war crimes. He said the government promised the UNP to facilitate the participation of foreign judges in the war crimes tribunal to be set up. However, he praised President Sirisena for the stand he had taken in objecting to foreign judges and inspectors.

Nanayakkara also said that the Tamil National Alliance was in a mighty hurry to see that foreign judges and inspectors in the country.
