President Mahinda Rajapaksa has appointed two more international experts to the international panel of experts advising the Presidential Commission to Investigate into Complaints Regarding Missing Persons in Sri Lanka, the President’s Office said.

Accordingly, an Indian human rights activist, Prof. Avdhash Kaushal and Pakistan Law expert Ahmer B.Soofi have been appointed to the panel, the President tweeted.

In July, the President appointed three eminent persons of international repute-British lawyers Desmond de Silva and Geoffrey Nice and U.S. law professor David Crane-to serve on the Advisory Council.

The Advisory Council will advise the Commission, at their request, and may include other experts appointed by the President as and when necessary.

Prof. Kaushal is the Chairperson of Dehradun-based non-governmental organization (NGO), Rural Litigation and Entitlement Kendra (RLEK).

In July, President Rajapaksa expanded the mandate of the Commission-originally set up to look into complaints of enforced disappearances - directing it to probe the roles of Sri Lankan army and the rebel Tigers during the civil war.
