Iromi Perera, Head of Social Indicator at CPA on the results of the ‘Census on human and property damages due to conflict – 2013’ due to be published in March 2014 by the Department of Census and Statistics.
“Many government officials have gone on record to say that this census will help the government arrive at an exact decision with regard to what happened during the war and a lot of weight is being thrown behind the importance of even conducting this census. That the government did it because they have nothing to hide and this would be very useful in order to counter allegations with regard to war crimes and the number of people who died and disappeared… the report that was released by the Centre for Policy Alternatives which is called the ‘Commentary on the Census on human and property damages due to conflict – 2013’, was released ahead of the final report of the Department of Census and Statistics because there are several issues that came out of this census that we feel that people should keep in mind when reading the final report and when looking at the final figures with regard to death and disappearance that will be released by the government.”
