The five-member Court of Inquiry (CoI), convened by the Commander of the Army to investigate into a recent alleged sexual misconduct by a member of the Sri Lankan UN Peace Keeping Mission contingent  in Haiti (MINUSTAH), has begun in close co-operation with UN Military Police in Leogane, Haiti.  

The Army headquarters said that the CoI comprises Major General N.A.J.C Dias, Adjutant General, Major General E.K.J.K Wijayasiri, Provost Marshal, Brigadier R.P Rajapathirana, Director Legal, Major H.S.K Jayasinghe and Major L.G Epa and is in the process of recording evidence from relevant witnesses.

Earlier on Sept 14, 2013, it was reported that the UN Military Police had commenced an investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct by a member of the Sri Lankan contingent to the UN Peace Keeping Mission in Haiti, based on an alleged complaint, said to have been made by a Haitian woman.
The Court of Inquiry upon return to the island expects to submit its findings to the Commander of the Army shortly, it added.

    If guilty, give him the maximum punishment otherwise don't make him a scapegoat.

    Verdict is Not Guilty!

    Obviously this was an international conspiracy.

    Please, in the same manner, punish those who were involved in war crimes during the 2009 war.
