UN panel representations welcome at LLRC: Govt

2010 Dec 19

The External Affairs Ministry, reacting to media reports of a possible visit to Sri Lanka by the UN secretary-general’s panel of experts on Sri Lanka, said yesterday that it will make the necessary arrangements to enable them to do so.

In a media statement released to the media, the Ministry said this position had already been conveyed through diplomatic channels, to the UN in New York.

“The Ministry wishes to point out in this regard that the Commission on Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation which was appointed by President Mahinda Rajapaksa under Section 2 of the Commissions of Inquiry Act, has issued a public notice carried by the newspapers in Sri Lanka on June 18 2010 in the Sinhala, Tamil and English languages calling for representations to the commission. The Government of Sri Lanka therefore has the responsibility to facilitate those desirous of presenting representations, as set out in the mandate of the commission.

“Accordingly, in the event of the panel of the secretary-general wishing to present representations to the commission, the Ministry of External Affairs will make the arrangements that are necessary to enable the panel to do so. This position has already been conveyed through diplomatic channels, to the UN in New York,” it said.
