[TamilNet, Wednesday, 10 November 2010, 05:19 GMT]
Sri Lanka’s government is to launch an island wide registration of
non-government, organizations (NGO) operating in the country,
Sri Lanka Minister Dinesh Gunawardene said in parliament Tuesday. He
made this statement in response to a question by government
parliamentarian Rajiva Wijesinghe.
The Minister who is also the government chief whip said some NGOs have
been acting against the welfare of the country and are also engaged in
tarnishing the image of the country abroad.
The government will look
into the problems in respect of granting visa extensions to
representatives of some NGOs, he said
