Japan's special peace envoy to Sri Lanka on Saturday said he was concerned over human rights abuses blamed on both the Sri Lankan government and Tamil Tigers as police returned hundreds of deported Tamils to the capital in a U-turn. However unlike Britain and the United States, which have both suspended some aid citing rights abuse concerns, envoy Yasushi Akashi said Japan would continue with its multi-million dollar aid programmes.
