Troops have not committed war crimes

Dec 7, 2010 4:48:36 AM - itnnews.lk

Leader of the House Minister Nimal Siripala de Silva has reiterated in Parliament that the security forces have not committed any war crimes.

Referring to a statement made by UNP Deputy Leader Karu Jayasuriya to a weekend newspaper he said that he had spoken on behalf of the Tamil Diaspora, the Ealamists, and alien forces.

The UNP is attempting to mislead the international community with regard to the Government and humiliate the country as they have not been able to create a stable position in the country.

He challenged Karu Jayasuriya to present any evidence in this connection to the Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission. The Committee Stage Discussions on the budget are currently being held in in Parliament.
