The Opposition MPs, who have pledged allegiance to former President Mahinda Rajapaksa are protesting against the Bill claiming that the Bill contains dangerous provisions and can be a risk to the country’s national security and it’s unity.

The Bill, once passed in Parliament would allow for the establishment of the Office of Missing Persons which will deal with cases of missing persons occurred during the war.

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.’

The vote for the Bill is scheduled to be taken up tomorrow.

    The statement issued by those opposing the Bill to set up an Office of Missing Persons states – that every Member of Parliament who votes for the Bill will be held responsible for ‘betraying the country and the armed forces’.
    Is not this an admission that the armed forces were responsible for causing disappearances of persons, before, during and after the war, which the OMP is designed to deal with. This is a a clear indication that those in the opposition had been behind the perpetrators of disappearances and used them to continue with that practice to get rid of those who opposed the regime both in the North and the South.
    Let us hope the law abiding people of Lanka and the international community will take note that this is the kind of people who were ruling the country during the period of the conflict and are against the UN HRC’s Resolution calling for investigations into such incidents. Let us also hope the current government will deal with perpetrators of disappearances and other human rights violations appropriately and ensure that there is no repetition of such incidents happen in the country in the future.

      “Joint Opposition MPs wearing black headbands staged a protest inside Parliament today against the setting up of the Office of Missing Persons (OMP). Due to the protest, parliament was adjourned temporarily for several minutes.”

      Most of the missing persons were kidnapped by the JO for Kappam.

      Some were killed, and the JO has the skeletons. They are seeing the writing on the wall. Move on and get it passed. Ask the JO to fess up.

      Some were burned and turned into CO2, Water vapor and oxides of Nitrogen along with some ashes.

    These men would have done anythign and everything to sabotage any moves being introduced by the current rulers.
    If the all were put into jail one behind the other, ntohing would have been the case.

    Lately Mr Cameron wearing a short, relaxing as any other simple men was in pictures in our country… former leader makes every effort to come back and continue his way of Dushanaya.. these men are simply the problem of the day.

    If not nature, but lanken laws should be made even more strict to put these men in jail.

      The problem is those men are backed by Maxes and Sumansekarayas .. in this society. People should have to change their Punnaku to get it correct.
      So long these grass eaters will change their attitudes, Maxes and Sumanyas will live up their wanachara fantasies which is the spread of malice and aggression. They will further support Rajakashes in public.

      For me, I would love to see Rajapakshes are hung by their balls, earlier than later.

    Suicide Bombers, Child Soldiers, Black Tigers and Sea Tigers are now all eligible for the Rana Viru Pension and or reparations…

    How cool..

    Ponniaya Jayasuriya who was the Buddhist Faction Leader is now a loyal servant of the Anglican , Vellala , Wahabi and LGBT Faction lead by Batalanda Ranil, the Yahapalana PM.

    This is despite the two hits Ponna Aiyya organized to finish off Batalanada few years ago, One by himself and the other using Keselwatta Kid.

      Sumanayas the flies found in the heaps of shits flowing in Rajakshes toilets will disgrace anyone today not being able to come back for their criminal life stlyes.

      This particular Sumanya is afrom Panadura.. formerly, he was called as ” Leela ” to CT readers.

      As is the case with Dayan, HLD from Aus, he is also sick person not being able to sense anything right.

      You guys can add only Batalanda, but Batalanda Ranil will take you guys slowly to the Lanken prisons, wait and see.. we ve been marching for a good shape with the time.

      No doubt, for all the mess created and left by Rajakashes, he has to spend years long in the jails. Latter will be reality if not today in few more months.

    People commenting here do not seem to have read this act or have any idea the consequences of this act. MR and JO may not be perfect but at least they seem to put put our forces first. The first country to congratulate on passing of the bill was US. That says a lot about who has been pressing to get this passed.
