The move to introduce a new Constitution was an attempt to divert the people’s attention away so the Government could establish a special war crime court as proposed by the UNHRC to probe alleged war crime charges and to ‘hunt down’ armed forces personnel, G.L. Peiris stated today.

Addressing a news conference held at the Dr. N.M. Perera Centre in Borella, Peiris said the government had been given an ultimatum to execute UNHRC proposals and therefore, it would establish the war crimes court and introduce retrospective laws to take action on military personnel.
