Apr 09, Colombo: Sri Lanka's Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission (LLRC) has said that the Commission has received over 370 written submissions at the March 27 hearings in Kalmunai.

LLRC media spokesperson Lakshman Wickremasinghe has told the media that some of the submissions were about those gone missing since 1995.

The official has said that some of the other submissions either written or oral concerned land ownership issues, which is another matter that is prevalent in the North and East.

Meanwhile, a large number of grievances at the March 26 LLRC sessions in Moneragala had been about orphaned children.

During the course of its public sittings, the LLRC has held public sittings in the districts of Jaffna, Batticaloa, Mannar, Trincomalee, Vavuniya, Matara, Ampara, Moneragala, Galle, Matara, Puttalam, and Anuradhapura.

The LLRC concluded its public hearings at the end of last month. The Commission is hopeful of handing over its report by May 15 to President Mahinda Rajapaksa.
