The Bill was passed amidst continuing verbal protests by members of the Joint Opposition.

The Bill paves the way to establish an Office of Missing Persons, despite protest by the Joint Opposition against the Bill today when it was taken up for debate in the morning in Parliament.

The Joint Opposition today protested against the Bill claiming that it contains dangerous provisions and can be a risk to the country’s national security and it’s unity.

The protest also led to Parliament being adjourned temporarily for a few minutes. In a statement earlier, Rajapaksa said that every Member of Parliament who votes for the Bill will be held responsible for ‘betraying the country and the armed forces.’

    Cooooooooooooooooooooooool… jayawewa…

    even if those men who killed even after the war is over have feared of this bill.
    But nevertheless it to be passed and allow the office to be opened is a good thing. UNHRC will welcome the move.
    But Mara will paint it in favour of them.

      Like rocks could fall alone- all the way towards a fair nation, things will get its way better. This will not be digestable to Joint Oppo men since they acchieved almost everything by evil nature. Today, being unable to see it right, now the Alibaba and 40 thieves are on a trip to Korea…

      where on the earth defeated leaders joined themselves representing the nation….

      why the current govt is allowing them to do so,…sure UNHRC and all other democractic bodies keep watching at MR circuses. How long the man would have the power to do so…. as it was the case with Gadafi… I am sure, they will also go against the man sooner than later.

      Today we enjoy a lot of freedom in the line of democracy and human rights… that allowed the pact getting passed in terms of Fish export to Europe, with the next GSP plus being regained.. all in all twoards the human rights things will turn its way better with the approval of Internatinal community.

      Rajakashe men wanted to show off their folks that they have been powerufl just beause Chinese built the roads… as it is the case in other developing counrties. too… they became swollen not having foresighted thoughts about the future. How come they have them not having a proper background see it further.

      WIth time, no doubt, lankens will march to progress of this nation. Gone were the days they called it is the Gadafi s friends state. Today, any country is open to us.. and we are also open to them. That alone says everything.
      Only the Gembas pass their Gembi views to their colleagues blocking everything of rthe country.

      This is a victory for the West. Just wait and see how the West is going to push you around, in order to accomplish the Western interests. Tamils don’t listen to smart Tamils. Ranil and Mangala have similar mindsets as Tamil diaspora. Some countries don’t deserve to live as the Western countries, Sri Lanka is one of those countries.

        ‘This is a victory for the West’ – you stupid man.

        ‘Just wait and see how the West is going to push you around’ – you dumbfounded idiot.

        ‘to accomplish the Western interests’ – We heard enough of this for decades you thoughtless maggot.

        ‘Tamils don’t listen to smart Tamils’ – neither Tamils nor Sinhalese will not listen to a downright venom like you.

        ‘Ranil and Mangala have similar mindsets as Tamil diaspora’ – What is your mindset you disgruntled rabid numskull.

        ‘Some countries don’t deserve to live as the Western countries’ – When did you become a demigod to make judgmental when you your thinking is so parochial and pathetic.

        ‘Sri Lanka is one of those countries’- How can you fuse in Sri Lanka into western countries you downright pest who do not understand basics of issues, leave aside serious issues.

        You must be a worshiper Wimal Booruwanse and blessed by the chandiya Gnanasara Thero.

        You can shrink mind further if you listen to Mahinda, Bayagota, Dinesh Gunewardene. Gamanpulle, Champika and many other thieves.

        Don’t waste your time anymore in these columns.

            And you should be a frog…. in a well not to know even there are varied thought bearers also among your sinhalese folks.

            See Joint Buruwas are backed by you but we would never back them…

            You guys go on licking the balls of Rajakshes, we would never do so… if can we would even do anything and everyhting them to be caught by Hague rather than lanken courts.

            And we would never want Mahindananda, Ratharana or other Horas to stay without being caught by jail sessions.

            And we do want to see Rajakashes illegal grabs be balanced by confiscting anything and everything belong to them.

            The very same manner Rajapakshes and their men thought when opinions rose against to them. Was that right ?

            Anthony – whoever you are – you have not the least knowledge about the current day politics.

            They always thought they came from Tamils. But last two elections proved to the world, that there are significant masses among sinhala community that would never support Rajakshe or the like politics. They will fight for permaenent peace. They would not work for pocket filling or our man principles. They will marginalize the policies that will pave the way thugs to get bred and destroy this country as had been the case upto Jan 2015.

          Thanks Dankotuwa manike, you have articulated almost my thoughts.

          Ghansara started attacking the ruling men again May be some hidden hand might have given him all instructions to continue where he stopped.

          For Gahansara it si all about protecting buddhism, but he never speaks anything about protecting our nation. lANKEN nation is not only buddhists. we the buddhists learn to repsect others too. I hate .. if the buddhist representative of us is Ghansara…

            I wouldlike to see the both becoming a married pair…

            – Mangalarama Monk

            – Ghanasara the most abusive monk from Colombo suburbs.

            These men hidden behind SANGAYA constumes have done all the harm to the Sasanaya than their good as some of us feel.

            Mangalarama Monk is the most abusive person – that have abused the laws… beating police men and women not respecting prevailing laws.
            How can the bugger monk ever be exemplary even if he may have protected that temple. Having watched a video lately, I happened to fele very bad me beinga buddhist. The buddhist practised by both mentioned monks have added to history as MONK THUGS of the current day.

        Not only to west but also us lankens that seek transparency.

        You guys make every effort to cover up for Maharaja.
        As a srilanken I wish Rajaakshes to face it .. not only the missing person during the war end, but in the post war sessions too, we need to investigate them.

        How you bugger say Ranil and Mangala have similar mindsets as Tamil diasphora ? Do you want to allow more killings and leave the skeleton in your backyards.. then please join Maharaja et al and Prabakaran.

        We the srilankens regardless of our race religion want missing person to be search. Eknaligoda and the like journalists we need to search for…. you buggers see it in that way, but this has nothing do to with being partial to the west.

        You mentality shouldbe changed if we the lankens have to become civlized.
        The move will be welcome by UNHRC than any others.. since it is a step forward to respect of human rights.

          Ranil and Mr Sirisena are tough would not even react to any kind of embassaracments. They perfectly know they are on the right path as if we started the journey from Kaduwel high way branch to travel to Matara on the high way.. no hurdles we will find, but there probablities of rocks being fallen on to the roads blocking the way ahead of us. But more certain the way they have chosen to outreach masses in and out of the country in terms of achieveing peace. Peace can only be achieved if only we would work on a system recognized by the world….

          Just being MR et al men – like frogs in a well, thinking that we are powerful than we really are – to destroy everything at every levels, can only cut our neck by our own hand.

        “Just wait and see how the West is going to push you around, in order to accomplish the Western interests. “

        Push whom?
        Sinhala Lankawe or The Eelam Tamil? If you know “abc” of politics you would not connect people with Asian monsters; still would you?

        Didn’t you write few days ago to wait & see how China going to push you around. What happened to that? There are no more computers in Lankawe?

        There rebels in the mental hospital complaining they become like that because of the rapist army’s injections. Even after all the tortures, rapes and humiliation they have managed to note what was going in prison for them. Have you any idea of what happened to you in the Old Royal palace for you to become like this? It just cannot be a simple brainwash! Any injections?

        This anthony peter should be gonthadiek, not to have got it yet.

        If we are asked to work for Reconciliation, we need to do it not half but whole.. there for everyone s clarrity why not we go for the above move.

        See how many of the IC commend it today. That is a big plus to HUMAN rights improvment in a country where almost everything went against the human rights. Not allowing the basic rights.

        Remember the days of MR:

        a) Women were attacked

        b) Children were attacked

        c) White vanning tremored every corners

        d) Gotabaya was seen as ALAW yaka Angulimala

        e) Some PS men but close to Rajakashes did anything and everything to decent men for no reasons.

        Why not we have the kind of office to trace them.. if many went missing – were they all not SRILANKNS ?

        Ballige puthas that only see their pocket filling cultres will disgree.. Wimal the Leftist the voice of LOW CLASS PEOPLE social scum IS AGAINST but JVP is fully backing…. why ?

        JOint DONKEY men are against why JVP and other moderates back ?

      If we repsect norms nothing can go wrong.

      Those who have skelitons in their cupboords only have to stay with but fears. Volks please question why JO is feared ? They even say in their govt they will bann the BILL

      All these remind me the past – that the previous regime allowed Police to stand next to the vandalists while demolishing the street illuminations and even CCTV camcers. THere vandalists were well known BBS rabid dog back men. Today we see police behave much better they dont just idle..

      is that not a tangible change during the last 18 months ? Yes indeed a change

      With the bill passed, real activities towards missing will be traced irrespective of the resistance being made by Rajakahse supporters (JOINT DONKEY FORCES). SO THAT is the big big plus in the line of moving forward

      And the other bills as they promised, will come to power sooner than later..

      So if anybody would say, there is no progress towards the main focus is a big lie they should definitely be intoxicated men by Rajakpakshe blatant lies

      Earlier people thought Rajakashe is a mati mola to trust onthe words of theat illiterat but by name Royal Astrolodgeer s thoughts geared up Rajakashes to go for early elections. But today, it is becoming clear MR s Arthika Gathakaya has warned him about the gravity of the poroblems that the state will have to face due to arbitory debt crisis deliberately made by MR et al. But the media men painted it nicely…. making thte Astrolodger a scapegoat…

      With 18 or more months gone, the very same media men have no balls to question former Minister of Finance yet…. for their own reasons… even if the freedom of speech is more than granted by the ruling govt.

      Big men hidden in Media Institutions should come up with their thoughts as to why they stay silent – they are the third force of this country, people of this country deserve facts about the realities. Just being stuck to biased agendas Journos to work on MR further should be ended.

      The voice of villagers in the country are JVPrs.

      JVPs are no against the bill getting passed.

      And the fact these villagers are the prey of Rajaapskhes kalliya for their political survivial. We saw the manner those villagers were about to commit suicide at the time, Rajakashes were defeated. Rajaakshes media men have injected in them wrongful information,… so we must not put the blame on the villagers for being that subjugated and intoxicated.
      Their world was ….. that Billas and Electric chairs. They never wanted a leader whose terms found the stop to long driven war to be EXECTUTED… good actors but bloodly leeches such as Wimal Buruwasne is and was the animators to feed the villagers with far wrongful blatant lies proving their Billa and Electric chair theories. All these were the recent history since Mr Sirisena came to power. He together with Ranil removed all the BILLA myths self opening tothe world that we have to go for peace and reconciliation. Now even not a single country on the west would be ready to deny Current duo.

      Is that not a greater achievement within a year ?

      Say yes men – longer the biased media men spread lies, the vulernarble folks would stay stand still but being supportive to fraudsters. Investigative processes are also not that speedy due to the complex of them – so the developments woudl not have been read and heard as okay…

      People wake up to build up an educated nation – then only we can march to the progress

    It is getting clearer by the day that the forces who gave their utmost for the country are left for themselves for protection.
    Yesterday it was in the news the the JO has made a written appeal to the President to intervene and prevent this from being passed.

          Bunjappu,
          You quoted “even if you are well paid by Rajapakshe funds you must not behave the way you have been as it is for the future of the nation”. What made you think he is being paid by MR?

          My question to you is “Is this what you called freedom of express?” Every time a post is made to oppose the Govt policy,they are seen by people like you as “Rajapaksa lickers who are are being paid by Mara”. Is this ever going to end? Do not forget there were 58 million voted against the Gov. Surely t58 million cannot be treated a Rajapaksa lickers.

          Would similar phrase apply to you too?
          It is you who need to think again. You may disagree with others view points but they too have the same right to express their views, so try and not ridicule them because one day they may be the lot who could be laughing the loudest.

            Gamunu,

            you and me we perfectly know if spoken to our circles how they tick about the problems that we hang on from the day on. We pefectly know how our people treat their miniorities and how some minority groups treat the boarder villagers. All these hve been the facts and we can be away from them today- not finding a way to harmonize focusing the permament peace. So in that regard the current govt with the support of some other powerful countries make every efforts to achieve the goal respecting also the international norms. During my last stay inthe country, two weeks ago, I refeshed my knowledge that there are still significant masses that do support JOINT opposition men and women for their own reason or them being manipulated by media men. Saddly I have not got to read buring issues being reported by media men yet today. They talk abou the wonders of Raja but doing nothing towards any achievements gained by current govt.

            And truthfully saying -We are no bettter ot any other poor folks that are struggling to rise up our heads either. So knowing the realities… what we can do it so support the reconcilitory efforts rather than blocking them. So what is wrong with getting pass an office for function in terms of missing persons ?
            Even in a small team there are varied thoughter bearers… I dont mind them adding their thoughts that way, but we have to converge with our common thoughts.. in someway to see successful end with the the path to the peace.

            And I attack Max or the others having studied their thoughts for the last few months not just because they opposed above.
            They are truly appologists of MaRa – I can prove them accoridngly.
            Greetings from Germany – today Berlin.

      NAK:

      A disciplined and a professional army will be respected and revered. They learn lessons during their training that they should observe the rules of combat and are bound by both local and international covenants, which donkeys like you should know that Sri Lanka has signed. And these rules and covenants apply to both the adversaries.

      When an army indulges in criminal activities and war crimes, it cannot hide behind the skirt of others and plead innocence. And moreover, the SL stand has been that its army is not guilty of such allegations. So, the baffling question is why should it cry and creep like some dungeon creature. It could have sought a closure long ago by putting its evidence to support its claim.

      It is not as if you donkeys have forgotten that such a revered army cleaned the slate of more than 70,000 Sinhalese in the 1970s/1980s. Are you not ashamed of that?

      In a democracy the Armed forces are subordinated to its political masters. In a dictatorship they do run the affairs of the state.

      If the army had done no wrong there is nothing to be worried. By the way recently a 12 year old girl was gang raped by a monk and a an army soldier around Matara area. Just because they come from armed forces and monk hood do you suggest both shouldn’t be legally punished?

      People attack the current duo, their smartness shaped up all the puzzles we had in terms of Internaitonal community.

      Had your god father been the winner of last two elections, today we would have been enjoy Trade embargo and even sanctions – this could could have turned an another somalia..

      Like or not, believe or not, specially our countries are highly dependent on western world and america.

      Had NOT we been offered LOANs, the country s economies would not have existed. We are an another small nation that struggle to surivvie. TO make us big men for their narrow gains is what we should NOT have done. We are not even better to Erethrea or the like countries. Just being swollen, we can only loose everything making our poverty levels even more.
      We cant even compete with some states in India so how can we be big ones to Europe.

      Rajakashes handled it as if Gadafi took the state… Gadafis ended up in drains, Rajakashes remained touring across the glob today but spreading all lies about their cover up. If they are that genuine, one by one, they should be able to clear for all the allegations levelled at them. Chinese relationship was made thanks to late Mrs B.and her relations then she maintained with China. Today MA students learn how diplomatic Mrs B had been and how China got on with lankens then. All the fruits were plucked by Rajakashes but not in a good manner.. but betrying the nation as no other leader did before. For that we have to pay a high price. That is the mere Truth.

      Pottu Amman has been said to have shared a bed with Gota while Gota’s wife slept in a spare room.

      Both were interested in enforced disappearance.

      “Does the UNP still have a Sinhala Buddhist Faction?”

        All Batalnda got to do now ,is expunge it from the Constitution.

        And he is well on the way, while Bodhi Sira is training Dumiya to write infringement notices to SLFpers.

        Does your mate Batalnda have a Handicap”,, Really ?..I don’t know may be you know better.

        But I see him playing Pocket Billiard, every time he does his Ataka Nataka in front of those learned CC experts in Kotte, watched by the one time Sinhala Buddhist Faction Leader of the great UNP of DS & Son Senanayaka .

Sri Lankans only think about the immediate scenario and never about principles and the big picture. imagine you are a hardcore Sinhala Nationalist and Ranil turns the state forces against you. don’t you want a legal mechanism that protects you?

    THIS IS HOW GOVTS LOOK AFTER THEIR SOLDIERS.

    “The Turkish parliament has voted to give more powers and authority to the military by granting them immunity from prosecution for actions they take while conducting operations against the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK).

    The law was passed late on Thursday and will make it significantly more difficult for alleged rights abuses to be properly investigated. Furthermore the permission of the military and political leadership of Turkey will be needed before any soldier can face prosecution.

    Critics have said this undermines civilian oversight over the military.

    The law is being applied retroactively, meaning it covers the actions of the armed forces against the PKK since the war was reignited last July after the failure of the two year ceasefire.

    This comes after human rights organizations and the United Nations have expressed serious concern over the actions of the Turkish Armed Forces in their ongoing fight against the PKK, especially the curfews and sieges they leveled against urban areas where the PKK were believed to have had a presence.

    Scores of civilians have been killed in clashes between the military and the PKK since last July. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan estimates that the Turkish state has managed to kill 7,500 PKK members since the resumption of hostilities, with a loss of 500 troops and security forces.

    The vote to give the military immunity comes after the parliament voted to strip pro-Kurdish Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP) parliamentarians of their immunity last May so they can be subject to criminal investigation for their alleged links to the PKK. “

      Jim Shitty, take your military and stick them in your kallu pukka. You can cry all you want, but the international community will make sure the culprits are brought to justice. Then we will grab the military and stick them in your kallu pukka. Either you do it now or we will do it later. The choice is yours.

          Hey Jim Shitty, did you arrive in the kalla thoni before the Tamils or after the Tamils. I don’t have a problem with decent Sinhala people who mean well for all in the country. But you and Sumanaya are a curse on this beautiful land. Where are you? Languishing in some foreign land working at some Tamil establishment as a coolie? Good enjoy the last days of your life on earth before the UN catches you kallu pukka. Hahahahaha……:)

    The army, government, remaining LTTE faction ONLY have to worry about missing persons office, ONLY if they are responsible for extrajudicial making somebody disappear. If they have nothing to do with missing people, they have nothing to worry. I am not worried that missing persons office is going to come and arrest me, because I did not do anything.

    If somebody says, its going to affect the army, you are in principal agreeing that the army is responsible for missing people.

    As the minister indicated this office is not created to investigate missing Tamils. Its an office to investigate any Sri Lankans gone missing in any corer of the country.

    Sri Lanka has the second highest missing persons in the world according to Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Forced_disappearance#Sri_Lanka
    And we need some mechanism like this to resolve the issue.

    At last! A necessary bill that will make the military and any government in power to think twice about acting against its citizens with impunity.

    The JOs and Rajapaksa’s gripe against this bill is to protect them and the bad apples in the military from exposure and punishment. How many of Rajapaksa brothers’ opponents were killed off or made to disappear during their misrule? Every crime they committed they blamed the LTTE. These bastards must be exposed and made to pay for their vile acts.

    I too currently support for to seek the Missing persons to be search in Sri Lankan since 1971 April by JVP’s anarchist of terror attack.
    The ruling regime has accountability for that the Missing person under their any regime had been violated rights of living in citizens in the democratic civil society.

    Last the war related Missing persons is a different case in an Island that USA and UK engaged of support of Tamil LTTE ruthless terrorism in the Island against previous MR alliance is not Pro-USA and UK ruling parties.

    That is why USA and UK want seek Missing persons in Sri lanka to be search!
    Both nation used UN human rights tools to be seek Missing Persons for undermined sovereignly of Island and the people who fought against Tamil Terrorism led by LTTE outfit.

    While they(US and UK) want global Road Map of separated Island for One for Tamil speaking land and Other for non -Tamils in island to become Majority turn into minority. That was political game play by hegemony political strategy of USA and UK in that Monsoon democracy In Indian Ocean Islands.
    By and large they (US+UK) want Military bases in East part of
    Sri lanka to control Indian Ocean for Military hegemony of pivot Asia.

    The Missing Persons act in Parliament will serve political project of their political ambition programmed for expanding to enter land of
    Sri Lankan by using seek missing persons interest .

    The local tools of politically support by UNP-Ranil W… MS, CBK , TNA and JVP are stooges anti-sovereignty political parties .
    They are all round traitors of Democracy of Sri Lankan in current members in Parliament who rule and ruin ours People’s sovereignty.

      Much more to come to light inthe days to come. So please be patient.

      Mahinda has been the most abusive president we ever had in lanken history, perhaps, in south asian history.

      Remember the words added by him as the fact finding mission CONSISTED of young unp MPs were brutally attacked by their goons came from Hambantota. Where have these men gone to this day ?
      Sure, they are the ones now control the overflowing toilet pits of Medamulana in Hambantota. No inveistgaions were called yet on the men, I question why.
      Ajitha Perera as I myself go tot see inthat video was assulted by a thug… and the others were also harmed…. the foul langague used by them were similar to that of Mahinda himself… with text being used by his front man bulldog Mervin. To that time, there wer eno sobre talks added by Mahinda. That alone proved me he is the king thug…. please do some more surfs and get info on this topic.
