Several issues cropped up after a relative of an LTTE member was appointed to a high position of the Human Rights Commission of Sri Lanka (HRCSL) by the previous government, former president Maithripala Sirisena told the PCoI into the Easter Sunday attacks.

He said due to such issues, he had summoned the HRCSL's former chairperson and questioned her about is functions.

Mr. Sirisena said the HRCSL had informed the United Nations' Human Rights Council (UNHRC) in Geneva that human rights violations were taking place in Sri Lanka during his tenure and that it had caused various problems.

He said the HRCSL had reported allegations of human rights violations, especially by the Armed Forces and the Police.

"According to the HRCSL, there had been reports of harassment of people at Police stations, but the HRCSL had reported the matter to the UNHRC before completing investigations into such matters," Mr. Sirisena said.

He said due to the complaints lodged by the HRCSL, Sri Lankan military and Police officers had lost the opportunity to join the UN peacekeeping forces, which was a major source of earning foreign exchange.

"I, therefore, summoned the then Chairperson of the HRCSL and asked what they were doing. Later I came to know that a member of the family of deceased LTTE member had been appointed to a high post in the HRCSL and that individual was the one who did such things," Mr. Sirisena said.  (Yoshitha Perera)

    So now you join hands with your aappa supplying friend who embrace LTTE murderers themselves, not relatives. You moda bokka panchaya, you will even sell your wife to save yourself, for all enjoyed on taxpayers sufferings. The actual justice for the 250 innocents deceased is to take back all you took from the government by your shrewdness.

    This is an inquiry about Easter Sunday Bomb blast, under your administration. Are you suggesting that HRCSL head is responsible for the massacre? The whole country can see when you spin fairy tales.

    Ok. As The President you checked to see on one side if there was someone sabotaging the reputation and progress being made in Sri Lanka. But on the other hand, what did you do to check if those allegations were true or not??? ...There are 2 sides to a story. Negligence written all over!
