The Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission (LLRC) says its final report would be submitted on November 15 and not before the set date due to any kind of pressure.
LLRC spokesman Lakshman Wickremasinghe has said that neither the United Nations (UN) nor the government could pressure the LLRC to complete the commission’s report by September to present it to the UN General Assembly.
The LLRC final report would therefore not be submitted to the UN General Assembly.
However, there have been calls from some members from the international community for Sri Lanka to present a report on alleged war crimes before the UN General Assembly.
Wickremasinghe has said the government was unlikely to put pressure on the LLRC and request for the Commission’s final report in a hurry.
