A court in Mannar has called for an investigation report into what is claimed to be the country’s biggest mass grave found five years ago.

A hearing on July 06 was attended by officials of the police, military and 27 government departments, lawyers and relatives of missing persons.

A total of 376 parts of human remains, including those of 28 children, were found during excavations at the gravesite on land belonging to the CWE in Mannar.

The lawyer representing relatives of the missing said the court decided no more excavations were necessary, and ordered the JMO to detail his findings and the next course of action.

Also, a report is to be submitted about victims of enforced disappearances.

The case will be heard again on September 12 and 13.
