The government has decided to establish an independent  Commission for Truth, Unity and Reconciliation through an Act of  Parliament.   


The act of the proposed Commission, which will address  issues pertaining to transitional justice and post-conflict  reconciliation, is currently in the drafting process as a concept paper  in consultation with relevant stakeholders, the President’s Media  Division stated. 

 
The concept paper, used to prepare the final draft of the  Bill for Parliament, will soon be available for comments to ensure an  inclusive process in developing legislation that strengthens and  safeguards national unity through truth, transitional justice,  reconciliation, reparation and social cohesion.   


The PMD issuing a statement said a key objective of this  process is to establish the truth regarding post-conflict grievances of  Sri Lankan citizens, facilitating reconciliation, reparation and  sustainable peace. The proposed Commission acknowledges every Sri  Lankan’s inalienable right to ascertain the truth, a pivotal aspect for  individuals and communities to heal from past conflicts.   


Additionally, the Commission aims to ensure and strengthen  national unity, peace, the rule of law, coexistence, equality,  tolerance, respect for diversity and reconciliation among the people of  Sri Lanka. This commitment extends to preventing any recurrence of  disharmony and future conflict between the multi-ethnic and diverse  communities.
