The Tamil National Alliance (TNA) has said that before looking at general amnesty for Tamil detainees and those detained under the Prevention of Terrorism Act (PTA), the government needed to establish a fact-finding mechanism.

Earlier, Government Minister Patali Champika Ranawaka had said that those who are accused of various crimes connected to the war including the military and the Tamil detainees should be given general amnesty.

TNA Spokesperson, M.A. Sumanthoran speaking to a media outlet had said that one cannot place the military and the Tamil detainees on the same level.

He pointed out that many of the detainees were languishing without any charges being filed against them while others had been dragged into it and their cases are still ongoing.
