Dec 11, Colombo: Economic Development Minister of Sri Lanka Basil Rajapaksa says that the final report of the Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission (LLRC) would be tabled in parliament in its entirety and not just the observations made by the Commission as earlier speculated.
Minister Rajapaksa has told reporters that presenting the full report to parliament would prevent any misunderstandings or misrepresentations.
It was earlier speculated that the government would submit only the observations made by the LLRC. However, Rajapaksa has observed that the full LLRC report is currently being translated.
President Mahinda Rajapaksa is expected to submit the report to the parliament along with an oral statement on the government's actions on the recommendations made by the Commission.
However, the government has not yet announced a date when the President may present the report to the parliament.
The eight-member Commission, appointed by the Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa to probe the three-decade long armed conflict with the Tamil Tiger terrorists, handed over its final report to the President on November 20th.
The President has said that the government will take actions without shielding anyone if the LLRC found any human rights violations during the war that ended in May 2009.
