The armed forces are preparing a report to counter the allegations leveled against the security forces in the Darusman report prepared by a panel of experts appointed by the United Nations (UN) Secretary General Ban Ki Moon, Army Commander Lieutenant General Jagath Jayasuriya said.

“As a response to specific paragraphs that made allegations against the military during humanitarian operations in the Darusman report, we all in the tri-services are now giving final touches to the compilation of a new report that will be shortly submitted to the international community,” he said. 

“The Security Forces conducted the humanitarian operations, with a zero casualty policy,” the Commander said while addressing student officers at Sapugaskanda Defence Services Command & Staff College (DSCSC) recently.
 
Lieutenant General Jayasuriya made these statements during his address on ‘Transforming of Wartime Army into peacetime Army ’touched on the question of much-talked‘ accountability’ during the humanitarian operations and how the war was conducted.

A committee comprising of senior army officers have been appointed by the Commander to gather and contribute to the report about the role played by the Army. (Supun Dias)

    IF...there any violations by Army personnel take action against them. This will be better than any report you can come up with.

    I thought that General Jagath Jayasooriya is accused of possible war crimes he commited, how come he is going to be a critic of the Darusman report? Why was he sent back packing from Germany as a suspect war criminal?
