Sri Lanka Says UN's Ban "Congratulates" Rajapaksa After Arrest of Fonseka

UNITED NATIONS, February 10 -- After Sri Lanka's Mahinda Rajapaksa had his electoral opponent Sarath Fonseka arrested, UN Secretary General Bank Ki-moon belatedly put in a call to Colombo. By the time the UN provided a requested read out of the call, the Rajapaksa administration had already publicly characterized it as a call of "congratulations," which followed Ban's own public statement of "relief" after the election. Mr. Ban had declined to send any UN presence to the presidential elections, and has rebuffed the recommendation by the UN's own Special Rapporteur Philip Alston that he name an investigative panel on war crimes in Sri Lanka. So what did he now discuss with Mahinda Rajapaksa?
