Appoint a Commission to inquire into the killings

[b]Appoint a Commission to inquire into the killings of Parliamentarians[/b]

[b]Colombo, 10 January, (Asiantribune.com): [/b]Sri Lanka’s President Mahinda Rajapakse has been urged to come forward to appoint a commission to investigate into the killings of more than 32 Sri Lankan parliamentarians, who were killed since 1975, alleged to be by the Tamil rebel outfit.

Up to date, it was alleged that the Government of Sri Lanka has failed to come forward to investigate into the killings of these parliamentarians, who at one point of time or other were members of Sri Lanka’s Parliament.

But in the meantime, when a delegation of the Tamil National Alliance Members of Parliament met the President of Sri Lanka, they insisted on an impartial inquiry on the recent killing of Joseph Pararajasingham, who was the national list member of parliament of the Ilankai Tamil Arasu Kadchchi - a proxy party of the Tamil rebel outfit – Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE).
