The United Nations has reiterated that its expert panel would not only talk to Sri Lanka’s Lessons Learnt & Reconciliation Commission (LLRC), the Inner City Press reported today.

Responding to an email questionnaire sent by the Inner City Press, UN spokesmen Farhan Haq had said “..as I made clear to you at the time, the panel has not confirmed travel to Sri Lanka yet. The arrangements would need to be right. It is NOT the case that the panel would only talk to the LLRC. The panel made clear to me that their work is broader than simply dealing with the LLRC. That's all we have to say on it for now.”

The government said yesterday it would issue visas for the United Nations expert panel to visit Sri Lanka and meet the LLRC, if and when such a request was made by the UN Secretary General’s office.

“They will not be permitted to carry out investigations, record evidence or visit places of their choice without prior government approval,” Media Minister Keheliya Rambuklwella said.

    Mr. Ban(e) Ki (moon-struck) Moon(y), you are living up to your name. You are trying to pull the carpet under our feet, just to please your masters and to win another term in office.

    The visit of UN investigative team should be unconditional to carry out their work.Any impediment placed by pakses amount to tricks tohide facts.

    You are most welcome with a warrant of course or with my permission. I have nothing to hide. I have nothing to show too!!!.

    Jay Saturday, 01 January 2011 03:41 AM

    Why can't the govt tell the truth without putting spin. Keheliya, we know you can articulate very well but reveal the truth.

    Thas Saturday, 01 January 2011 04:20 AM

    Well said UN Panel. This itself proof that the Govt of SL is guilty of war crimes. Go ahead with your full and independant inquiry/investigation.

    Calistus Jayatilleke Friday, 31 December 2010 09:53 AM

    So who is the liar? Keheliya Rambukwella, of course !!

    Best thing is to hand over the contract to the Doctor and get him to tie them to the tree if they are found straying from their authorised location - LLRC!

    Hewa Saturday, 01 January 2011 12:06 PM

    Did this Moon appoint a committee to look into the Wikeleak disclosures. Why is this double standard if they do not have a hidden agenda?

    SL Friday, 31 December 2010 01:48 PM

    So let me come to your house and search; you don't have anything to hide right?

    SL Friday, 31 December 2010 01:55 PM

    There is no lie, there is different opinions. SL Government would not issue visas the BOON committee to come and investigate.

    Sellam Sena Friday, 31 December 2010 01:57 PM

    Hena...hena...hena...wena...hena....mena....hena jokers of the new millennium 2011 .... Happy New Year.

    Thomas Friday, 31 December 2010 02:23 PM

    UN has every right to talk to any citizen, as long as S/L is a member of the UN. What is there to hide from the world?
