The Quebec government Tuesday rejected an offer from Mohawks holed up in this town west of Montreal to end a two-month impasse by surrendering.

In a brief statement by Premier Robert Bourassa, the government called the proposal ``unacceptable' because it ``contradicts fundamental principles of democracy and our justice system.'``There is no question of a special category of individuals receiving treatment under the law different from any other citizen of Quebec,' the statement said.

The Mohawk offer hinged on creation of a special commission that would exercise ultimate authority for determining any criminal charges.
