Sept 21, Colombo: Sri Lanka's major Tamil party, the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) says there are doubts over the government's commitment to implement the recommendations of the Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission (LLRC).
The TNA has expressed their doubts during a meeting with the members of the UN Human Rights Commission (UNHRC) who are currently in the country.
The TNA team delegation led by R. Sampanthan included MPs Mavai Senathirajah, Suresh Premachandran, Selvam Adaikalanathan, P Selvarajah and M. A. Sumanthiran.
The TNA had discussed matters about lands being taken over ostensibly for development purposes and on which, persons of the majority community were being settled, cultural and religious places being denied to the Tamil people, issues relating to demilitarization, disappearances, detainees, changes in the demographic composition in the North and the East, accountability and the evolution of an acceptable political solution.
TNA parliamentarian Sumanthiran said that attention was paid to land issues related to high security zones.
He added that the TNA had also discussed the US backed resolution that was adopted by the UNHRC in March calling on the government to implement the LLRC recommendations.
