US, Norwegian Embassy officials observe LLRC proceedings in Jaffna

[TamilNet, Sunday, 14 November 2010, 07:05 GMT]
In the context of international media agencies being not permitted to enter Jaffna, officials of the Embassies of America and Norway in Sri Lanka are in Jaffna observing the proceedings of the Lesson Learnt & Reconciliation Commission (LLRC) in Jaffna peninsula at various places. The complaints made to LLRC by many parents about the disappearance of their daughters after arrest by Sri Lanka Army (SLA) in Vanni and Oamanthai during the last days of the war are directly observed with interest and recorded by the officials of American and Norway Embassies, the sources added. In the meantime, three leading Human Rights groups have slammed LLRC accusing Colombo's commission of failing to “meet basic international standards for independent and impartial inquiries.”

Colombo claims that nearly all the former women Liberation Tiger combatants arrested had been released. Action is being taken to take legal action on the remaining combatants, less than a hundred of them under detention now, it said.

But complaints of a large number of young women gone missing after arrested by SLA continue to be made to LLRC in its sessions conducted at various places in Jaffna peninsula.

Many of the young women who had fled Vanni along with the crowd had been arrested in Oamanthai screened by SLA as Liberation Tiger combatants but they were not Liberation Tiger combatants but innocent young women, the complainants told LLRC.
