Tamil National Alliance (TNA) MP M.A. Sumanthiran says both the LTTE and government forces committee war crimes during the war and reports on such incidents are available worldwide.
He questions why the government rejects war crime allegations against government forces when Tamil people admit that the LTTE committed war crimes. No one says only one side committed war crimes, he added.
He went on to say that the government must not be involved in investigations into war crimes allegations since the government forces were a party to the war.
Tamil people can only trust in an impartial investigation conducted by an external party, he added.
