Sri Lanka said it would not fully implement the recommendations as the commission had gone beyond its mandate in some areas.

The government felt the UNHRC was attempting to lay the groundwork to take action against Sri Lankan political leaders and military officials over allegations of war crimes during the final stages of the war against Tamil Tiger rebels, said Premjayantha.

Premjayantha told parliament that the government will not allow any foreign government or institution to conduct investigations in Sri Lanka.
