The party said that it would help provide redress to those affected as well.
The committee comprises JVP Members of the Western Provincial Council Dr. Nalinda Jayatissa Lakshman Nipunarachchi and Member of the Colombo Municipal Council (CMC) Hemantha Kumara.
Dr. Jayatissa told a media briefing that the committee expected to gather information on corrupt deals including giving State contracts to the associates of State hierarchy, killings and assaults of various persons including journalists, acquiring lands forcibly in Colombo and elsewhere, intimidation of State workers in various institutions and on disappeared persons.
The party also urged all businessmen and individuals to provide information on various intimidations they had to suffer by the politicians in the past.
