[TamilNet, Thursday, 30 July 2009, 10:33 GMT]
The Secretariat for Co-ordinating the Peace Process (SCOPP) which is to wind up its activities 31 July will no longer facilitate the All Party Representative Committee (APRC) to conduct its meeting from 1st August. "We have to look for a new organization to facilitate our activities such as seeking arrangements to conduct future meetings", APRC Chairman and Minister of Science and Technology, Professor Tissa Vitharane told media.
"APRC had the last session under the SCOOP Tuesday and for the next meeting we have to make separate arrangements. I will meet the President soon to discuss it," he said.
The APRC was appointed in 2006 to work out a power devolution formula to resolve the national question. So far it had had over 100 deliberations.
