Dr. Jehan Perera, executive director of the National Peace Council , has observed that the role of the foreign judges is likely to be more in the form of advisory role.
He was speaking to an Indian Daily. He said: “The earlier version on the nature of judicial mechanism was ambiguous whereas the revised text is more specific and it reiterates the government’s position, which is for a domestic mechanism.
The role of the foreign judges is likely to be more in the form of advisory as otherwise there will have to be amendments to the existing laws.
Another significant feature of the resolution is that “the reputation of those, including within the military, who conducted themselves in an appropriate manner with honour and professionalism” would be safeguarded even as a “credible accountability process” will be in place for “those most responsible for violations and abuses”.
