Sri Lanka President to appoint committee to probe anti-Muslim violence in Kandy

A committee to probe the anti-Muslim violence in Kandy is to be appointed by the Sri Lankan president, the Presidential Secretary has said.

The committee will be made up of three retired judges, who will be appointed on President Sirisena’s return from foreign visits.

The announcement was met with derision in some areas, with critics pointing to Sri Lanka’s long history of appointing fruitless committees, commissions and task-forces.
