The Sri Lankan government was warned by UN about the possibility of leakage of its report, which accuses Lanka of committing war crimes during the final offensive against LTTE, a top official has said.

"The UN Secretariat told the government that it was concerned that the report might be leaked because everything leaks from the Secretariat," Palitha Kohona, Sri Lanka's envoy to the UN, told PTI.

The UN, however, refuted the claim.

"We have no reason to believe that the leak came from the secretariat," UN deputy spokesperson Farhan Haq said.


The UN has not officially released the report but it is expected to do so this week.

The Sri Lankan government has rejected the report as "fundamentally flawed" and "based on patently biased material, which is presented without any verification."

Kohona said the Sri Lankan government is "studying the report to highlight its flaws." (Source PTI)
