Sri Lanka's Reconciliation Commission to invite Opposition Leader for hearing

Sri Lanka's Reconciliation Commission to invite Opposition Leader for hearing

2010 Dec 26

Sri Lanka's Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission (LLRC) appointed by the President is to invite the Opposition and main opposition United National Party (UNP) leader Ranil Wickremasinghe to testify before the Commission.

The LLRC expects to hear from Wickremasinghe, the reasons for signing the failed ceasefire agreement (CFA) in February 2002 between the Sri Lankan government and the separatist LTTE.

Wickremasinghe, when contacted by the secretary to the LLRC, S.B. Atugoda, had said the chairman and members of the commission had to make an official request for him to appear before it.

Wickremasinghe has told the media that he was answerable to parliament and if the commission wanted to have him before it, they had to make a request.

The LLRC has been tasked to examine the facts and circumstances which led to the failure of the CFA that was in effect from February 21, 2002 and the sequence of events that followed thereafter up to May 19, 2009, when the war ended.

President Mahinda Rajapaksa appointed the eight-member Commission in May 2010 to investigate whether any people, group, or institution bears any responsibilities for the conflict and suggest measures to prevent such conflicts from happening in the future and to mete out restorative justice to the conflict-affected.
