The government has decided to release the information on war detainees, a step seen as a response to the country's reconciliation commission report.

The ministry of defence said that a decision has been made to release information on the detainees, saying the details will be revealed only to the close relatives.

"A round the clock mechanism has been established by the Terrorist Investigation Division to provide details of the detainees and those who are already released", an official statement said. Release of information of those detained by the forces since the end of the war with the LTTE was a major cause of concern for the Tamil minority parties. Tamil parties claimed that those who surrendered at the end of the military conflict had disappeared without any trace.

The Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission (LLRC) in its report made a number of important recommendation on the detainees. The report noted several instances of LTTE detainees remaining in detention without charges and in which next of kin were not notified. It also asserted that no person should be detained outside authorised places of detention.

The LLRC also had recommended the appointment of an advisory panel to monitor and examine detention. (PTI)
