Colombo: A report commissioned by the Sri Lankan government to probe allegations of war crimes will be released in mid-November, an official said Tuesday.

The deadline for the final report is Nov 15, Xinhua quoted official Lakshman Wickremesinghe as saying, adding the contents would be revealed only then.

The LLRC mandate is to hold accountable any person or institution that may be guilty of war crimes in the last phase of the war that ended in May 2009, leaving thousands dead and many more displaced.

But rights groups including Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International have questioned the credibility of the LLRC. (IANS)
