TNA’s call for second opinion on Mannar bones: UK sidesteps query

The British High Commission yesterday said that a decision on a second opinion on Mannar graves was up to the authorities concerned. A BHC spokesperson said: "That is an issue for the investigating authorities. As noted by the High Commissioner during his recent visit to Mannar an impartial and conclusive investigation that inspires confidence, is in the interests of all communities in Sri Lanka. "

The spokesperson said so in response to The Island query whether the UK supported the TNA’s call for a second opinion from another lab in a different country as regards Mannar mass grave following a leading US lab ruling out that the bones belonged to people killed during eelam war (SF)
