Sri Lanka says UN panel report has ingredients of LTTE remnants


Saturday, 23 April 2011

Sri Lanka says the UN panel of Expert report on Sri Lanka has the ingredients of the LTTE remnants and the Tamil Diaspora. Sri Lanka Government spokesman Media minister  Keheliya Rambukwella  said that skeletons of various statements and utterances made by the LTTE rumps and the Diaspora during the last stages of the war against the LTTE has found its way in the UN panel of expert report.

Mr Rambukwella said that the government would not be commenting on bits and pieces of the report of the three member panel of United Nations experts on accountability issues during the latter stages of the humanitarian operation in Sri Lanka, but, instead, would map out a systematic strategy- locally and globally to counter it.

The government of Sri Lanka has already taken up the matter with Non-Aligned movement and the countries such as Russia and China
“The majority of the statements which have been made within the commission report, are remarkably the same as the statements which were made by the LTTE rump and the Tamil Diaspora in the final stages of the war,” the minister has told the Daily News.

The government once it received the copy of Banki Moon’s panel report rejected it as fundamentally flawed and patently biased

The three -member Commission, chaired by Indonesia’s Marzuki Dharusman and comprising South Africa’s Yasmin Sooka and Stephen Ratner of the United States and appointed in May 2010, handed over the report to United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki Moon on April 12 and the United Nations has shared a copy of the report with the government of Sri Lanka.
