Ranil gives a verbal reply to LLRC PDF Print E-mail
According to UNP leader Ranil Wickramasinghe, he has given a verbal reply to the secretary of the Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission on testifying before it. He also said the following. “I verbally told the secretary of the LLRC that traditionally those who held the positions of  Prime Minister and the opposition leader are responsible only to the Parliament and if any testifying is to be done on such persons outside the Parliament the chairman of the LLRC should issue the notification and it cannot be done through the secretary. I am responsible only to the Parliament as the former Prime Minister with regarded to the Cease fire agreement and this is situation of our constitution as well. Also it must be clearly known whether the UN Expert Panel will appear in front of the LLRC. So I cannot appear in front of the commission without these clarifications, especially when there is also the rumor that the LLRC is being used to tarnish the image of the opposition. Since I have given a verbal reply in this regard there is no possibility to take any further step in this regard”.
