The Government today insisted that war crimes were not committed by the military during the war with the LTTE.
Science, Technology and Research Minister Sujeewa Senasinghe said that the Government has always maintained that the military never committed war crimes.
Human rights groups and the Tamil diaspora have been calling for investigations over claims that war crimes were committed by the military.
However, Senasinghe said that he had personally studied the allegations after the war and was of the opinion that the claims were not factually correct. (Colombo Gazette)
