Military personnel connected to massacre and abductions, government accepts

If human slaughter has been perpetrated during war we are not going to object arrest of Military personnel. Similar to some Military personnel fighting the war some Military personnel had committed man slaughter and abductions, said the Cabinet spokesman and Minister Dr.Rajitha Senaratne.

The weekly Media conference for announcing the cabinet decisions was held yesterday in the State Information Department. The Minister said as above speaking in the conference.

He further said that punishing the military is not included in the conditions for GSP+. Only ensuring good Governance and Human rights were mentioned in it.

If the Military had committed manslaughter during the war those who had done it should be arrested he said.
