The Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission (LLRC) has decided to accept written representations from individuals and organizations till December 31, 2010 as a result of the extension of its mandate by President Mahinda Rajapaksa by a period of six month in view of the large number of persons from Sri Lanka and abroad still to give evidence before it.

The mandate of the LLRC was to expire on November 15 but now it will be able to continue hearings and submit its reports until May 16, 2011.
