SL parliament debates emergency extension motion

[TamilNet, Thursday, 07 April 2011, 11:27 GMT]
While moving a motion to seek the approval of House to extend the State of Emergency for another month, Sri Lanka’s Prime Minister D.M. Jayaratne Thursday claimed in parliament that LTTE’s international network remain intact even after LTTE's defeat two years ago in the battlefield. Jayaratne referred to the talks between with US Assistant Secretary of State and the representatives of the Global Tamil Forum (GTF) and the British Tamil Forum (BTF) recently. The State of Emergency is being extended every month with the approval of the parliament since August 2005.

Jayaratne appealed to the opposition parties not to internalize the domestic issues but to discuss them with government and find solutions amicably.

He disclosed to parliament that some of the former LTTE cadres released after rehabilitation had been rearrested as the security forces suspected them being involved in terrorist activities.

But Jayaratne did not disclose the names or the number of the ex-LTTE cadres re-arrested.
