By Ravi LadduwahettyThe UNP yesterday said if the government was planning to partially implement to the LLRC recommendations, it would have to face the consequences both locally and internationally.
UNP Deputy Leader and Hambantota District MP Sajith Premadasa said that the government had a moral, ethical and legal obligation to ensure the full implementation of the LLRC recommendations.
If the government decided to implement only some of them, such selective action would be perceived both locally and internationally as a purposeful abrogation of the rights and duties of the Sri Lankan government, he said.The government could not provide lame excuses for not implementing the LLRC recommendations in full.
UNP Kandy District MP Lakshman Kiriella said that the government should tell the people what recommendations it proposed to implement.
He said the government had to implement all the LLRC recommendations.
Meanwhile, acting government spokesman, Deputy Minister of Economic Development, Lakshman Yapa Abeywardena when contacted by The Island said that the government had implemented parts of the recommendations, while there were some which were yet to be implemented. There were some recommendations that could be implemented straightaway, but others would take time as they had to be implemented by the proposed Parliamentary Select Committee.
