Northern Province Chief Minister CV Wigneswaran has urged the European Union (EU) and the United Nations (UN) not to heed to the government’s request for more time to probe war crimes allegations.

Wigneswaran made the request when he met EU ambassador Tung-Lai Margue together with the UN Resident Coordinator Una McCauley on February 15 in Jaffna.

The Chief Minister had reportedly said that the investigations process would slow down, adding that there was also a possibility of the issue being swept under the carpet if more time was given.

He had also raised several concerns including the continuous presence of the military in the province.
