    Nothing to worry. Until proved everyone in innocent. These are good for democracy. Joint Opposition has become a joke.

    A black day for the country. One of the most betrayed acts in the history of Sri Lanka. Sad. Are we that ungrateful as a nation?

    Ranjan Fernando Thursday, 11 August 2016 04:24 PM

    Thank God they took a definitive step towards maintaining law and order.

    This is undemocratic and unethical.

    WHAT ABOUT "OFFICE FOR MAD PEOPLE"

    Bawa Thursday, 11 August 2016 04:48 PM

    It was passed with ammendents from other parties. There is nothing unconstitutional about that .

    IT MAY BE A SMALL STEP IN DEMOCRACY BUT DEFINITELY A GAINT STEP TOWRDS HUMANITY. via DM Android App

    Priyantha Thursday, 11 August 2016 04:52 PM

    No right thinking Lankan would consider this surreptitious move a definitive stand for law or order.

    Any country in the world should not be a haven for murderers and criminals.

    BuffaloaCitizen Thursday, 11 August 2016 05:03 PM

    Not at all, this is a righteous and lawful. It is only murderers, criminals and their supporters who do not like this bill.

    BuffaloaCitizen Thursday, 11 August 2016 05:06 PM

    Well done Sri Lanka, we should not leave room in this country for any criminals, murderers and thugs to hide behinds authority and commit humanitarian crimes. After independence, this is the only act that keeps to Buddhist principles that has been passed in parliament.

    So making anyone who opposes those in power 'go missing' is a patriotic act?

    Ranjith A Thursday, 11 August 2016 06:39 PM

    OMP is not only to trace the people went missing in the war-torn area but of the soldiers who had gone missing during the war.So it would benefit both North

    Lecturer Thursday, 11 August 2016 06:58 PM

    ANTON Friday, 12 August 2016 12:58 PM

    THANK YOU TONY FOR RECOMMENDING THIS OFFICE

    Nandana Friday, 12 August 2016 01:09 PM

    The people who sacrificed everything on behalf of sovereignty of motherland become in vain.

    Chandima Thursday, 11 August 2016 08:56 PM

    Wonder, USA and UK will pass the similar bills to look for the missing Persons in Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya...?

    Bala Thursday, 11 August 2016 10:09 PM

    How can USA UK pass laws for other countries - let Iraq Afghanistan and Libya do that.
