|LLRC to wind
up general sessions
By Arthur Wamanan
The Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission
(LLRC) said it hoped to conclude its general
sessions by tomorrow.
LLRC Secretary S B Atugoda told The
Nation that the commission would call for oral
submissions if they are of any importance.
He added that the commission would be busy with
several other activities in respect to its mandate
and therefore was looking to end the general oral
“We will conduct oral sessions if we think that
their submissions are important,” Atugoda said.
“However, the Chairman and the commissioners think
that there needs to be an end somewhere.”
Atugoda said that former president Chandrika
Kumaratunge had expressed her willingness to testify
before the commission.
He said the commission had written to the former
president, to which it had received a favourable
response from her.
“She has responded positively to our letter.
Therefore, we expect that she would come and give
her submissions to the commission in the near
future. We have not finalised on a day for her
submissions,” Atugoda added.
