Sri Lanka's Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission (LLRC) is in the process of finalizing its report that is demanded by a UN panels investigation into alleged war crimes, officials said Sunday.

"We are reviewing the evidence and are currently in the process of drafting the report", Lakshman Wickramasinghe, the LLRC media spokesman said.

LLRC is Sri Lanka's panel to look back at the island's separatist conflict and learn lessons from the conflict that cost over 70,000 lives since the mid 1980s.

The report is to be released by mid next month, a year after it was appointed by President Mahinda Rajapaksa.

The LLRC finding where northern Tamil people affected by the war waged by the Tamil Tigers gave evidence is to be Sri Lanka's answer to international cries for accountability.

The LLRC report would be issued against the current backdrop of a report by the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon's advisory panel, which calls for an independent investigation into alleged war crimes during the last stages of the war with the Tamil Tigers.
