General Secretary of the JVP and Minister of Megapolis Champika Ranawaka criticized that the Consultation Task Force in its report justified the LTTE, adding it strengthens them.

The Consultation Task Force which was appointed by the Prime Minister which endorsed the UNHRC’s call for including international judges to probe war crimes allegations against the Sri Lankan troops and the LTTE.

“The report does not make any reference to the plight of the Sinhala majority and the issues faced by the Muslim minority,” said Champika Ranawaka. He asserted that the report, released last week, had only dealt with the issues faced by the Tamils.

The report has been released by Consultation Task Force on Reconciliation Mechanisms recommending hybrid court to probe war crime allegations. The task force report recommends the setting up of a special court and office of special counsel; the court shall ensure that every bench is occupied by at least one international judge.
