 “I am planning to invite the three members to come over and observe some of our sittings," Maxwell Paranagama, Chairman of the Commission on Disappearances has told Sri Lankan media today.
 
"However, it would not be for the next sittings in Mannar from August 8 to 11, but they would be invited for a future sitting,  Paranagama has told the Sunday Times newspaper. He has also added that the Commission hoped to take up 280 complaints from some 380 received from the district. 
 
Meanwhile, constituent parties of the government such as the National freedom Front and Jathika Hela Urumaya have vehemently protested the appointment of international experts to assist the Sri Lankan Commission on disappearances. 
 
Writing a special letter to President Rajapaksa one and a half weeks ago, Minister Wimal Weerawansa said the international experts would expedite international action on Sri Lanka.
