The government on Tuesday briefed diplomats on the implementation of recommendations of a post war commission that looked into the root causes of the country’s civil war.

External Affairs minister G.L. Peiris and secretary to the president Lalith Weeratunga has met Colombo's diplomatic community for a 'comprehensive briefing' on the work carried out to implement the proposals of the Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission (LLRC), the ministry of external affairs releasing a statement said.

Sri Lanka's LLRC has come up with a number of proposals to increase the liberties of all citizens, justice and rule of law, some of which may involve deep rooted changes to the structure of the state.

Weeratunga told reporters last Thursday that some of the complex recommendations like land and police powers needed a political consideration but there were many other recommendations that could be easily implemented.

"The detailed matrix, including priorities, the institutions entrusted with responsibility, key performance indicators and time frames, was explained to the diplomatic community," the statement said.

Sri Lanka faces a universal periodic review at the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva this November where the island's human rights record and good governance will be evaluated.

    So it is the international community that is safe guarding the right of the masses in Sri Lanka. Why should we vote for the UNP or JVP? Can I vote for Obama?

    Briefed? Sir, to actually brief people you must be able to actually show some concrete steps. Wonderful speeches & powepoint slides don't mean s---!

    Not really! It is the Tamil diaspora that puts pressure on the representatives of the western world politicians by promising them the vote and in turn they pressurize the western governments! Otherwise do you thing that the foreign diplomats care for the Tamils in Sri Lanka?

    Can you explain why we should forget about the police and land powers?

    First Sri Lanka has to commit themselves implmenting LLRC recommedations. Sri Lanka is scared for the next UN meeting and trying to fool the international community and it will never work.

    Send more Sinhala diaspora to the western countries.

    WE NEED IN ACTION NOT IN WORD.

    It is very unethical to appoint another commission to look in to the recommendations made by the LLRC. We are in doubt whether this government is responsible for the international community or the people who voted them.

    if the Govt. genuinely beleives these are internal issues, why bother expalining /convincing the international cimmunity

    be-real Wednesday, 01 August 2012 07:54 AM

    The Govt does not have to do all these if they are genuine with the implementations of LLRC. Remember Wiki leaks? These diplomats are living in SL and know exactly what goes on in Sri Lanka from information received from various sources. These presentataions only show Govt's nervousness with world opinion.

    Forget about the devolution of land and police powers, what people need is justice, rule of law and safeguards.
