Tamil National Alliance (TNA) Parliamentarian M.A Sumanthiran told Parliament today that he is ready to admit that the LTTE committed war crimes.
He said that all international reports very clearly say that both the military and the LTTE committed war crimes.
Sumanthiran said that he will come under fire from his community for saying the LTTE committed war crimes.
However he says he is prepared to admit that the LTTE did commit war crimes during the war.
“All parties committed (war crimes),” he added.
Sumanthiran also commended former Army Commander Sarath Fonseka for repeatedly saying he is prepared to face a war crimes investigation. (Colombo Gazette)
