Lanka to implement proposals

Shrugging off the international community’s lack of faith in the credibility of the government-constituted panel to look into the civil war, Sri Lanka has set up an advisory group to implement its interim recommendations.

The inter-agency advisory group will facilitate the early implementation of the interim recommendations by the Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission (LLRC), set up by President Mahinda Rajapaksa.

The interim proposals of the LLRC seeks speedy disposal of cases relating to detainees and to keep family members informed in the event of the change of location of detainees.

But the internal panel’s credibility was questioned again with the British Prime Minister, David Cameron, calling for a independent investigation into what happened during the decisive phase of Sri Lanka's war against Tamil Tiger rebels.
