The Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission (LLRC) today confirmed that the commission’s report would be completed and handed over to President Mahinda Rajapaksa in the second week of November prior to the reports due date.

“The commission is in the process of fine-tuning and making certain adjustments to the report. We will complete the final draft by the second week of November,” LLRC spokesman Lakshman Wickremasinghe said.

Mr. Wickremasinghe said the contents of the LLRC report would not be revealed until the report was released next month in order to keep with constitutional requirements.

The government had stated that it would address war crimes allegations made against Sri Lanka after the LLRC report was released. Meanwhile there has been pressure from the international community to discuss the LLRC report at the UN Human Rights Council sessions in March next year.

The final date for the report was November 15. The mandate of the LLRC was to investigate and report on the circumstances which led to the failure of the ceasefire agreement in 2002 and events that followed thereafter up to May 2009.

The commission’s purpose was also to determine whether any individual or institution directly or indirectly was responsible in this regard and to highlight the lessons learnt from these events and to ensure that there would be no recurrence.

The mandate of the LLRC was also to support administrative and legislative measures to prevent any repetition of such concerns in the future and to promote national unity and reconciliation among all communities.

The LLRC began its hearings in August 2010 until February 2011 during which time submissions were made to the commission by academics, politicians, clergy, humanitarian organisations and other well wishers in Colombo and in the Northern parts of the country. (Olindhi Jayasundere)
