May 14, Colombo: Sri Lanka Police said it had commenced investigations into disappearances according to the recommendations made by the Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission (LLRC) in its report.

The police have made this statement in reference to media reports of the Bishop of Mannar, Rayappu Joseph being questioned by the police.

Police Spokesperson Superintendent of Police Ajith Rohana has told the media that the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) had not questioned the Bishop, but merely wanted to clarify certain statements made by him to the LLRC.

Bishop Joseph in his submissions to the LLRC last year had referred to the disappearances of persons during the period of the war.

The police however, maintain that it would follow some of the recommendations made in the LLRC report with regard to the police.

According to SP Rohana, the CID was acting according to the recommendations made by the LLRC.
