LLRC begins processing evidence


The Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission (LLRC) has commenced processing evidence it has received.

"Now we have entered the second phase of the process, that is to analyze thousands of written and verbal evidence submitted by the public", Media Consultant of the Commission Lakshman Wickramasinghe told PRIU.

"But this doesn't mean the Commission has stopped public hearings. We will continue to hold public sittings as and when needed", he said.

He said the Commission will hold its next sitting in Ampara in mid February which was postponed due to flash floods in the area.

President Mahinda Rajapaksa in May 2010 appointed the eight-member Commission to report on the lessons to be learnt from the events in the period from 21st February 2002 to 19th May 2009. The Commission is chaired by the former Attorney General Chitta Ranjan de Silva.

The final report of the Commission is due to be presented to the President in May.
