Rejecting Mahinda Rajapaksa's proposed presidential commission to investigate disappearances during the armed conflict, the main Tamil party, the Tamil National Alliance (TNA), said that the Tamils would not accept any such commission.
The TNA spokesperson Suresh Premachandran said:
"Since the government has deliberately failed to implement the LLRC recommendations over the past three years, they are now appointing commissions after commissions to show the world that they are implementing LLRC recommendations. Although the government can fool some, they cannot fool the Tamils or the International community."

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
