    This is an absolute must for the govt.

    If you look at how LTTE collects funds, cause propaganda all over the world is ONLY on the fact that the govt. is `killing tamils`. There are no other grounds for them to collect funds as the human rights record on fellow tamils in LTTE areas are almost nil under LTTE.

    The consequences for the govt. could be terrible. Agitation in Tamil Nadu, cancellation of Indo-SL defence pacts, cancellation of German aid, impending EU resolution are some.

    The govt. can not stoop down to a level of a terrorist organisation and when ever a questionable incident occurs they can not say that they are not responsible with out giving concrete reasons. Most of the time `commissions` are appointed just to buy time and are forgotton. Act of investigative ommission automatically puts the blame on the govt.

    Until and unless the guilty are punished, the govt. forces think that they can get away with anything. On the other hand if the govt. say that forces did not do it, why not prove that it was the LTTE which will be good for the govt. propaganda. If it is a paramilitary, that too should be exposed to prevent the govt. getting the blame.

    I only hope this commission will not be just another like the many many before.
