NGOs to testify before Select Committee

[TamilNet, Friday, 13 October 2006, 00:46 GMT]
Non-governmental organizations (NGO) identified as potential threats to national security are to be called to testify before the parliamentary select committee appointed to inquire into the activities of NGOs, said Mr.Wijitha Herat, Chairman of the Select Committee. Wijitha Heart is a parliamentarian representing the Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP).

He said legislation would be brought to parliament shortly to ban NGOs that are found working against the national security and territorial integrity of the country.

Already the parliamentary select committee has recommended banning NGOs that are found working against the interests of Sri Lanka.

Some NGOs are found working in support of separatist policy and these NGOs would be summoned before the select committee, he added.

He said that selected officials of the ministries of Public Administration and Education are also to be summoned for inquiry before the parliamentary select committee for inquiry in regard to some controversial projects now being carried out with the assistance of NGOs.
