UNP: Give LLRC Powers To Probe War Crimes

Apr 23, 2011 4:21:16 AM - thesundayleader.lk

The UNP has said the government should empower the Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission (LLRC) to inquire into war crimes allegations mentioned in the report prepared by the expert panel appointed by UN secretary general Ban Ki-moon.

UNP parliamentarian Lakshman Kiriella has told a Sinhala daily newspaper that the government needed to take steps to safeguard the country’s dignity and good name.

Kiriella has said that the government should have earlier responded to the allegations leveled against the country.

According to the UNP parliamentarian, the government still has time to respond to the allegations and clear the doubts.
