The report on the president's commission on missing people, also known as the Paranagama Commission, was given to parliamentarians on Friday.
The commission was widely discredited, with Tamil victims groups boycotting it and the recent OISL report also criticising it. Nevertheless, there have been widespread calls for the release of its final report.
The Nation reported that the government released the report to MPs in order to give them adequate time to study it ahead of the upcoming Parliamentary debate into the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) resolution passed at the beginning of this month.

We need your support
Sri Lanka is one of the most dangerous places in the world to be a journalist. Tamil journalists are particularly at threat, with at least 41 media workers known to have been killed by the Sri Lankan state or its paramilitaries during and after the armed conflict.
Despite the risks, our team on the ground remain committed to providing detailed and accurate reporting of developments in the Tamil homeland, across the island and around the world, as well as providing expert analysis and insight from the Tamil point of view
