[dbsjeyaraj.com] The current visit to Sri Lanka by UN Human Rights Commissioner Ms. Navanetham Pillay known as Navi Pillay has aroused much interest and anticipation in the country. There is hectic activity by many Human rights activists and Non–Governmental Organization personnel to meet Ms. Pillay directly and air their grievances.
It appears that meeting Navi Pillay in person is almost a status symbol for a certain category of persons. There are also attempts to derive political mileage out of such encounters.
One person who announced her intentions openly about meeting Navi Pillay was Ms. Anandhi Sasitharan contesting the Northern Provincial Polls on the House symbol of the Tamil National Alliance. Ms. Ananthi is the wife of former LTTE political commissar for Trincomalee district Sasitharan alias Ezhilan. He is one of the senior tiger leaders who went missing after surrendering to the Army in May 2009.
