Lanka is to review illegal arrests

2015 Mar 06

The Tamil National Alliance (TNA) had also sought the release of the Tamil detainees as part of an agreement to support the new government at the last presidential elections.

UN Under Secretary General for Political Affairs, Jeffry Feltman who was in Sri Lanka this week, also urged the new government to immediately release Tamil detainees to build confidence ahead of a domestic probe into alleged war crimes.

Feltman had said the government of President Maithripala Sirisena, should make concessions to win the trust of minority Tamils who remain largely skeptical about his intentions. (Colombo Gazette)
