    What wedding is this (mona magulak da mey)? Nothing in this country happens without a bloody 'presidential commission'. I'm wondering if the president gets a commission out of all these commissions?

    'Appoint a special commission'....for what? To bury the matter??

    I don't remember when was the last time that we implemented the results of special commission! Have we ever brought perpetrators to justice.

    When the mass grave contains Singhala skeletons there are no UN probes and protests from the 'international community'.

    Brother's Comapny had to check whether a "certain invidual" who had apperently been the in-charge of that camp site during the same period of this crime is out-of-danger. Looks like that fear is no more!

    Eng Sunday, 07 April 2013 06:24 AM

    I do not think that the people have faith in these so- called Presidential Commissions. It will be only a burden on state coffers.

    Calistus Jayatilleke Sunday, 07 April 2013 10:47 AM

    He should include Minister Weerawansa too as a member of the committee to see if he can remember any of his comrades in arms who were misled by his so called "lessons" which drew them into such a tragic fate.

    kautilya Monday, 08 April 2013 03:57 AM

    Parliamentary Select Committee government members on Impeachment are the best team for the commission
