President reminds that Darusman Committee was set up for consultation and not for investigation

Sep 25, 2011 10:56:23 AM - itnnews.lk

The President has brought to the notice of the UN Secretary General that Darusman Committee was appointed to advise him and not to conduct an investigation into the allegations against Sri Lanka.

President Mahinda Rajapaksa and the UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon met in New York yesterday at the UN Headquarters. They held discussions about the current situation in Sri Lanka. When the Secretary General met with the President on 27th of September last year he had informed that the Darusman Committee was appointed for consultation and not to carry out an investigation. The President recalled this and said that all the displaced people were resettled excluding a small number. The number of security forces personnel in the north has been greatly reduced. Those who remain there are engaged in massive renovation and development projects. The President also said that security of the nation is being strengthened in the post conflict era and terrorism will not be permitted to raise its head. The Sri Lankan delegation including Ministers, Parliamentarians and the heads of the staff of the Secretary General also participated in the discussion.
