The Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission has completed its report on the final stages of the war and is awaiting a communication from the President’s Office regarding the handing over of the report.

Lakshman Wickremasinghe the Media co-ordinator for the LLRC speaking to Daily Mirror online said that the report is complete and is now in the process of being proof read. "The report has been completed and is now in the process of being proof read, we hope that the process will finish by Thursday (November 10), the commission is awaiting an official communication from the President’s Office regarding the handing over of the report."
 
The LLRC was appointed as a Presidential Commission by the President, in accordance with the constitution as a fact finding mission into the final days of the war. Wickremasinghe stated that the mandate given to a presidential commission provides that the report be handed over only to the president of the country.

"According to the constitutional clauses which govern the appointment and the mandate of  a Presidential commission, the legislative requirement is that the report of any presidential commission, only be handed over to the president" he said. When queried as to if the report will be available to the public or if the report will be handed over to the United Nations, Wickremasinghe pointed out that the legislative enactments with regard to a Presidential Commission does not give the Commission a mandate to do so. "The duty of the commission is to hand over the report to the president, the handling of the report and the consequent use of it is the prerogative of the president of the country," he said.
