The UNP today called for an independent judicial inquiry into the military attack on Weliweriya villagers and added that the UNP had no confidence in military investigations.

UNP MP Lakshman Kiriella told a media briefing that state sector institutions were no longer independent since the repeal of the 17th Amendment.

He said it would be best if the independent judicial investigation was presided over by the judges of the Supreme Court.

Mr. Kiriella said an Army investigation would not be independent or impartial because the army came under the purview of the executive presidency.

He said the investigations carried out by the government were of no use and largely a waste of time.(LSP & LP)

    First and foremost, UNP should investigate how Ranil W can be dicktator for so long before calling for other investigations

    Mr. Kirella, are you in Sri Lanka or elsewhere ? Have you forgotten that there is no Independent judiciary anymore !!

    Hello Sanyo,

    It's an internal problem of UNP (I agree that it has some adverse effect to the country as well), but i couldn't find any fault with having or asking an independent inquire for this incident. By considering the gravity of the incident, it is a must.

    Are you really satisfied with the act and behavior of the army in this incident?

    rgrds,
    Chan

    No less than an international inquiry is needed to look in to this massacre.
