LLRC cases to AG for investigation

The Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission (LLRC) has handed cases of several persons who have appeared before the Commission to the Attorney General (AG) for further investigation.

LLRC Spokesperson Lakshman Wickremasinghe told The Sunday Leader that about 10 to 15 cases have been handed over to the AG since the Commission does not have the mandate to inquire into issues raised by persons who have made submissions.

Wickremasinghe said that the cases that have been handed to the AG are of issues raised by some of the individuals who made submissions before the LLRC and pleaded with the Commission to inquire into them.

“Some of these issues are related to abductions in the North and East,” he said.

He added that the AG has initiated action with regard to some of the cases handed by the LLRC.

“The cases were handed over on the request by the people who appeared before the Commission,” Wickremasinghe observed.

    and the AG will close case citing no evidence. Lanka judicial system is a joke

    Sri Lanka has no history of investigation, accountability and justice under the Rajapakse regime except alleged criminals are exported to other Western nations, assigned as diplomats and awarded from crimes against huamnity.

      Because guys like you (members of Tamil diaspora) are sworn enemies of justice and fairness. You will do anything to scuttle the judicial activities in Sri Lanka in order to achieve your impossible dream.

    LLRC cases to AG,then to CID & then may go to TID…nice going indeed.
    Will the relatives of the abducted lot get some reply,relief or any of that sort ?
    Or will they be handed over to the relatives ? At least will they produce a list of people held in various hidden camps & torture clinics ?..Every one is watching & waiting.
