|COLOMBO， March 15 (Xinhua) -- Sri Lanka on Wednesday reiterated that it would not allow the establishment of a hybrid court to probe allegations of human rights abuses and war crimes just weeks after the UN urged the island country to set up special hybrid courts to try war criminals.
Deputy Minister of Power and Energy， Ajith Perera， addressing the weekly cabinet media briefing here， said that Sri Lanka was capable of handling its domestic issues and the government had faith in the country's judiciary.
"Our judiciary is very strong and we are capable of solving our own issues. The President， Prime Minister and government has made it very clear that we will not allow any foreign judges or lawyers to be a part of any probe，" Perera said.
In a 17 page report to be published on March 22， UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein noted that Sri Lanka should adopt legislation establishing the hybrid court， which should include international judges， defence lawyers， prosecutors and investigators， to investigate allegations of violations and abuses of international human rights law and violations of international humanitarian law， and provide it with the resources necessary to enable it to try those responsible promptly and effectively.
The UN described Sri Lanka's progress in addressing the allegations as "worryingly slow".
In its latest report， it said abuses including torture remained widespread， with "a prevailing culture of impunity" partly to blame.
The UN said coalition politics in the unity government formed after ousting former leader Mahinda Rajapakse were likely to blame for the slow pace of progress.
As many as 40，000 minority Tamil civilians are alleged to have been killed in final months of battle between government troops and Tamil Tiger rebels. Sri Lanka's 30 year civil conflict ended with the defeat of the rebels in May 2009.
More than 100，000 people are believed to have been killed during years of conflict.

TOKYO Adidas Ultra Boost 3.0 Limited Black Men's UK , Jan. 18 (Xinhua) -- The main opposition Democratic Party of Japan (DPJ) on Sunday threw its support behind deputy president Katsuya Okada, who is becoming its new leader in a party presidential election.
Sunday marks the second time Okada, 61, has stepped into the party's top seat Adidas Ultra Boost 3.0 Collegiate Navy Men's UK , having previously served as the party's chief from 2004 to 2005.
Following a hard-fought victory over former party secretary- general Goshi Hosono in the runoff, Okada managed to win the post, securing 133 points in votes cast by the party lawmakers and members endorsed for national elections, compared to Hosono's 120 points.
Okada as the new DPJ president Adidas Ultra Boost x Porshe Design White UK , will now be charged with the hefty responsibility of mending a deeply fragmented party and becoming a bone fide political entity strong enough to challenge the ruling Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) and Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's unilateral and right-leaning attributes in parliament.
Okada's rise to power in the DPJ comes at a dismal time for the opposition camp, which took a battering in the last month's snap- election as the DPJ failed to stop the LDP winning more than a two- thirds majority, which has led to the ruling coalition now holding sway over both the more powerful lower house and the upper house of Japan's bicameral system of parliament.
Observers and party members alike conceded that the party had been in such a shambles; suffering from increasing infighting, factionalism and ill-discipline Adidas Ultra Boost 3.0 Men's Black UK , in the months ahead of the December general election that Abe extending his grip on political power in parliament was a given, as the supposedly main opposition party failed to field enough candidates to even theoretically win a two-thirds majority.
Thus, it came as no real surprise that the DPJ's former president Banri Kaieda was forced to step down from his post after losing his seat in the Dec. 14 lower house general election.
"The (DPJ) has been in dire straits, there's no secret about that and while the public's hopes for the party were high when they ousted the liberals after a 50-year unbroken rule in 2009 Men's Adidas Ultra Boost 4.0 Navy Multicolor Blue UK , such faith has declined consistently since then, amid policy gaffes and financial scandals and as a succession of three prime ministers in as many years have swung in and out of the then revolving door for Japanese politics," Dr. David McLellan, a professor emeritus of postgraduate Asian Studies in Tokyo Men's Adidas Ultra Boost 4.0 Carbon Navy UK , told Xinhua after Sunday's election result.
"But the early day's of the party's leadership and its ' potential' have not been forgotten by the public, and, if it sticks to its original campaign and policy platforms, such as the unpopular consumption tax hike postponement Men's Adidas Ultra Boost 4.0 Show Your Stripes Pack Black UK , support for smaller businesses and low income families, the party could see its followers swell," McLellan said.
He went on to say that while the situation was possibly too embryonic at the moment, the possibility exists for the DPJ to bring about the long-talked about realignment of the opposition camp Men's Adidas Ultra Boost 4.0 Show Your Stripes Pack Tech Ink UK , to create a veritable political opponent that has the teeth to cut down some of the ruling coalition's self-serving policy aims that don't necessarily reflect the needs and wishes of the electorate they're purporting to serve.
"I want to drastically rebuild the party and to transform it into one that can face the Liberal Democratic Party, and take a firm grip on Japanese politics," Okada said during a recent news conference in Tokyo.
"This could be the last chance for the DPJ to regain power," he said Men's Adidas Ultra Boost 4.0 Multicolor White UK , adding that the party needs to become more united and use a firm hand in politics. He added that inner and cross-party discussions would be of tantamount importance going forward, but once a policy decision is made, all members must stick to it. Otherwise, he said Men's Adidas Ultra Boost 4.0 Blue Grey UK , "the DPJ can not regain the public's trust."
Okada also stated that while a possible alliance with parties such as th.
