The UN resolution was accepted by the TNA spokesman M.A. Sumanthiran said that the Judicial Mechanism suggested by UNHRC for Sri Lanka was a Hybrid Mechanism. The TNA which consists of four parties do not see eye to eye with M.A. Sumanthirans version. They (Suresh Premachandran – EPRLF, Siddarthan – DPLF & Selvam Adailkalanathan – TELO) say that the Mechanism recommended is a ‘local one’ with Commonwealth judges, lawyers and prosecutors supporting a local initiative is not what the Tamil people want. Tamil people desire a more credible process. Suresh Premachandran EPRLF says that the previous inquiries such as the previously government commissioned Maxwell Paranagama Report was full of contradictions. He also said that almost all eminent persons had walked out of the commission in protest.
