Ban on LTTE extended by Presidential decree

[TamilNet, Thursday, 05 July 2001, 16:37 GMT]
The proscription of the Liberation Tigers has been further extended according to a new order issued by President Chandrika Bandaranaike Kumaratunge Thursday. "The new order has been issued under Section 27 of the Prevention of Terrorism Act No: 48 in 1979" said the Presidential Secretariat.

The President issued another two orders under the Public Security Ordinance. One Order declares the whole country a security area for the maintenance of public order, while the second Order declares several public services as essential services.

"These new orders have been issued taking into consideration the present situation in the country," government sources said.

The President's new orders came as the debate on extending the emergency scheduled on Friday was cancelled by the government, state-run Sri Lanka Broadcasting Corporation reported in its evening news bulletin.

"The Prime Minister will inform Parliament Friday the proposed actions to be implemented under the new orders issued by the President" SLBC reported.

The Section 27 of the PTA states:

(1) The Minister may make the regulation under this Act for the purpose of carrying out or giving effect to the principles and provisions of this Act.

(2) Every regulation made by the minister shall be published in the Gazette and shall come into operation on the date of such publication or on such later date as maybe specified in the regulation.

(3) Every regulation made by the minister shall as soon as convenient after its publication in the Gazette be brought before parliament for its approval. Any regulation, which is not so approved, shall be deemed to be rescinded as from the date of disapproval but without prejudice to anything previously done thereunder. Notification of the date on which a regulation is deemed to be rescinded shall be published in the Gazette.
