Govt. To Grant Visas To UN Panel

Dec 30, 2010 2:42:54 AM - thesundayleader.lk

The government said today (30) that visas would be issued to the UN Panel of Experts on Sri Lanka to visit the country and meet only with the Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission (LLRC).

Cabinet Spokesperson Minister Keheliya Rambukwellla said that the government would grant visas to the members of the Panel only to go before the Government appointed LLRC and not to conduct any investigations of their own.

Rambukwella said that the government initially objected to the Panel’s visit to Sri Lanka, as it was to conduct an inquiry. However, the government has decided to grant visas to the Panel since it has been stated that the members only wished to meet the LLRC.
