Lesson Commission can play an important role

Aug 22, 2010 6:03:29 AM - itnnews.lk

It has been underscored that the Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission has the potential to play an important role in the post-conflict accountability process.

This emphasis has been laid by the Deputy Head of the South Asia Group from the UK Foreign and Common Office, Will Middleton. Making a statement during his three-day visit to Sri Lanka and the Maldives, he said the Commission will also contribute to national reconciliation. Mr. Middleton also reviewed the progress towards resettling the displaced and the clearing of areas in the North and East to pave them for safe return.

In a news release, the British High Commission in Colombo said that Mr. Middleton also familiarized himself with the Government’s proposals for constitutional reform. During his visit, he met with Government and other officials, members of Diplomatic Missions, local project partners of the Conflict Prevention Pool of the UK Government and media personnel.
