‘Truth panel’ to visit East

By Arthur Wamanan
The Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission (LLRC) is scheduled to conduct sessions in the East next week.
The LLRC will be in Trincomalee from December 2 to 6 and then will again travel to Ampara on December 10.
The commission is scheduled to be in Ampara till December 14.
The commission will continue to conduct sessions in Colombo as well.
The commission had earlier visited Kilinochchi, Mullaithivu and Jaffna to record submissions of several persons who were affected due to the ethnic conflict.

The LLRC had also submitted its interim proposals recently to President Mahinda Rajapaksa based on the evidences they had recorded.
In its report, the LLRC had included issues faced by the civilians with regard to land ownershiop, livelihood, security among several others.

The LLRC was appointed by President Mahinda Rajapaksa in May this year to report on the lessons learnt from the events that occurred since February 2002 till May 2009.
The aim was to ensure that there will be no recurrence of violence in the country.
The commission was to submit a final report to the President six months after its appointment.
The President, however, extended the time by a further six months for the commission to do a comprehensive study over the situation.
