The armed forces are preparing a report to counter the allegations leveled against the security forces in the Darusman report prepared by a panel of experts appointed by the United Nations (UN) Secretary General Ban Ki Moon, Army Commander Lieutenant General Jagath Jayasuriya said.

“As a response to specific paragraphs that made allegations against the military during humanitarian operations in the Darusman report, we all in the tri-services are now giving final touches to the compilation of a new report that will be shortly submitted to the international community,” he said. 

“The Security Forces conducted the humanitarian operations, with a zero casualty policy,” the Commander said while addressing student officers at Sapugaskanda Defence Services Command & Staff College (DSCSC) recently.
 
Lieutenant General Jayasuriya made these statements during his address on ‘Transforming of Wartime Army into peacetime Army ’touched on the question of much-talked‘ accountability’ during the humanitarian operations and how the war was conducted.

A committee comprising of senior army officers have been appointed by the Commander to gather and contribute to the report about the role played by the Army. (Supun Dias)

    I thought that General Jagath Jayasooriya is accused of possible war crimes he commited, how come he is going to be a critic of the Darusman report? Why was he sent back packing from Germany as a suspect war criminal?

    IF...there any violations by Army personnel take action against them. This will be better than any report you can come up with.
