The OHCHR Report on Sri Lanka, the Udalagama Commission and the Paranagama Commission Reports were debated in Parliament on Friday as well.

Prime Minister, Ranil Wickremesinghe stated:

The judicial power of the people will be implemented only through the institutions that we establish, and we will not go against them.

He went on to question as to how can we proceed?

He further stated:

Forward your proposals and subsequently we will direct a bill to the parliament and the Supreme Court and that will be the final opportunity because we do not want to give this. Even if we want to and we have no need to do so so, we will act according to the determination of the Supreme Court.

He also noted:

We cannot be taking up cases so let us forget them. We need to step out of the pit that we have fallen into so let us band together. We are creating a domestic mechanism so we will seek the truth through that.

Chief Opposition Whip, Anura Kumara Dissanayake stated:

We need to step out of the constitutional framework so if we can speak of the issues surrounding the constitutio , it means that we can also discuss the issues over the sovereignty of the nation, the independence of the nation and national security. However, who speaks of the people’s issues?

He added:

If an MP is hit on the head when engaging in politics in the North, we need to know about that and the JVP needs to know about it. Even if the others try to undermine it so provide an opportunity to investigate the process by establishing a Parliamentary Select Committee and do not make external mechanism and KP must be included in to the process.

Minister of Housing and Construction,Sajith Premadasa stated:

Today it is called hybrid but back then it was a very different foreign policy.

He further questioned as to why was there on foreign policy for the president, another for the foreign minister and another for the monitoring MP for the Ministry of External Affairs and the Governor of the Central Bank had another foreign policy and the gang of friends had another foreign policy while the secretive groups had a separate foreign policy?

He also stated:

Look at the destruction that was caused by this two way policy
