Government insists domestic process on war probe underway

Mahinda-SamarasingheThe Government today insisted that the domestic process on investigating incidents related to the war was underway.

Minister Mahinda Samarasinghe said that the Cabinet approval given to create an office on missing persons was part of the domestic accountability process.

He also dismissed claims that 40,000 civilians were killed during the war.

Samarasinghe said that a former Colombo based UN official had made the claims about the 40,000 death toll and this was quoted as the source in a UN panel report.

He insisted that the UN itself had not claimed that 40,000 civilians were killed during the war nor did any foreign Government. (Colombo Gazette)

  1. Don’t be fooled, but play along wisely. The Westerners invaded North America and Australasia on genocide. Millions of Native Americans, Canadian and Australian Aboriginal people had been killed to take over their homelands. The Americans, Australians, Canadians and Kiwis don’t even live in their own country, but they are very good in preaching democracy and human rights to occupy the moral high ground, in order to rule others. For your note Asians, Arabs, Africans, Europeans including Russians and South Americans all live in their own countries, but the preachers of democracy are occupying others’ homelands.

    • And Antany you don’t live in your own country New Zealnd is been good to you still getting hand out from New Zealand tax payer. Your arrogance don’t fit to well when you have to line up at Winnz office in Wellington get the dole..

  2. I think you will find , Mr Peter , that Sinhalese people don’t live in their own country either. The Veda people are the natives of Sri Lanka having been there for in excess of 40,000 years. The British came and then had the decency to leave , the Dutch came and they had the decency to leave , the Portuguese came and they also left.
    Only the Sinhalese and Tamils have came , and have not only not left , but actually make the claim that it is their country.
    Before you start spouting ancient history perhaps you should read up about your own. Could it possibly be that you are conveniently ignorant of the subject.
