The presidential manifesto clearly says an international investigation will not be allowed, said Sri Lanka’s foreign minister responding to questions on the upcoming UN report into mass atrocities.
Responding to questions on BBC Sinhala, Mangala Samaraweera said,
“The presidential election manifesto clearly says an international investigation will not be allowed. A local mechanism will be considered to investigate allegations of human rights violations. Action will be taken pursuant to the release of the Geneva report in September.”
Mr Samraweera also said that the domestic investigation would take into account the UN investigation into Sri Lanka's atrocities.
