    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.

    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?

    Nodrog Sunday, 07 April 2013 05:51 AM

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

    upul Sunday, 07 April 2013 08:26 AM

    Yes. Good to have a intense investigation

    RamUk Sunday, 07 April 2013 07:57 AM

    gloom an doom thats what SL is...

    Pol Pot Sunday, 07 April 2013 07:52 AM

    That was quick, because it happened during another era. Why the delay in investigating

    pathi Sunday, 07 April 2013 07:46 AM

    useless

    sepa Sunday, 07 April 2013 07:46 AM

    how many commissions u have appointed until today.. any commssions gave any proper result?

    Hettiarachchi Sunday, 07 April 2013 07:35 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.

    Thala Sunday, 07 April 2013 06:59 AM

    If Its with true intention without not for political benefits Its good but highly doubt it

    Ram Sunday, 07 April 2013 06:36 AM

    What about the Aid workers ?

    OMG Sunday, 07 April 2013 06:28 AM

    What took so long to appoint the commission?

    Eng Sunday, 07 April 2013 06:24 AM

    Why it took so looooooooooong time to appoint. it is ringing!?

    Ando Sunday, 07 April 2013 06:19 AM

    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!

    Skull & Bones Sunday, 07 April 2013 06:11 AM

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

    Bugsy Sunday, 07 April 2013 06:03 AM

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