Sri Lanka rejects UN war crimes panel

[TamilNet, Thursday, 24 June 2010, 10:56 GMT]
The Government of Sri Lanka said Thursday that it would not issue visa to members of UN Experts Panel to enter the island. Establishment of UN Experts Panel would only complicate matters of the Commission set up by the government. Sri Lankan Foreign Minister G.L. Peiris at a media briefing on Thursday said:"Our government rejects the UN experts’ panel and they would not be allowed to enter the island."

While replying to a question at the media briefing Mr. Peiris also said that the timing of appointing the UN experts panel was questionable.
