administrative practises to president`s attention.

The is is to be done in official transactions with
government departments, especially the ability to make
statements to the police in one`s own language among many

measures are based on the issues identified by the LLRC from
evidence gathered so far. This was when citizens in the former
conflict ridden areas attended to the hearings when the
