GTF Chief responds positively to President’s invitation

President of Global Tamil Forum Rev.Fr.S.J.Emmanel has accepted an invitation extended by President Maithripala Sirisena and Foreign Minister Mangala Samaraweera to come to Sri Lanka and work for reconciliation.

Ceylon Today reports the GTF chief as having told Dr Wickramabahu Karunaratne, “Although I have accepted the personal invitation of the President and of the FM to come home and work for reconciliation, I depend very much on the cooperation of the progressive forces of the South to explain the whole truth to the Sinhala masses and I hope we have at least made a start in liberating the masses from the falsehoods of politicians.”
