LLRC’s final report next month

The Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission (LLRC) has not sought an extension of its mandate which expires on May 15 and is working towards submitting its report to President Mahinda Rajapaksa by that date, the Commission’s Media Coordinator Lakshman Wickremasinghe said.

He said the Commission had completed the gathering of information and was processing it with a view to compiling a final report.

The Commission heard evidence from residents in the Kalmunai, Siyabalanduwa and Buttala during its final sittings. Mr. Wickremasinghe said the Commission had a “tremendous response” in all places it visited with many people coming forward to give evidence.

There were also many others who gave written evidence as they did not want to be identified, he said.
The warrant of the LLRC requires it to inquire and report in particular on the facts and circumstances which led to the failure of the ceasefire agreement of February 2002 and the sequence of events that followed thereafter up to May 19, 2009, when the LTTE was defeated.
