Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe is said to have secured Cabinet approval for the enactment of a piece of fresh legislation along similar lines of the law in the United Kingdom to prevent the rise of ISIS terrorism in Sri Lanka.

The Prime Minister, in his Cabinet memorandum, observes that though the terrorist group led by Zahran Hashim had been destroyed after Easter Sunday’s bomb attacks, it would not be the end of ISIS terrorism in Sri Lanka.

He had taken a leaf from the book of the United Kingdom on the steps to be taken for drafting this legislation and has proposed to introduce a new definition of terrorism on similar lines with the UK law. The new offences to be included in the proposed law are the encouragement of terrorism, dissemination of terrorist publications, application of them in the internet, preparation of terrorist acts, training for terrorists, attendance at a place used for terrorist training and making and possession of devices of material.

The bill, if enacted, will deal with the commission of offences abroad and will cover extraterritorial jurisdiction. It will be an offence for anyone to commit terrorist activities overseas and enter areas designated in the bill. (Kelum Bandara)

    How about banning religiously or racially exclusive period altogether from political landscape? Surely discrimination is discrimination. But oh no I forgot, you depend on these parties for your divide and rule approach

    This Prime Minister is a national disgrace. How can he keep worshiping the West, on this occasion copying the exact terminology from Britain. No wonder they don’t have any respect for Sri Lanka.

    Cabinet or Dressing Table. No one cares now.

    No Colonian influence. Lets have home made rules. These Rulers who are Looters can not survive without the Old Blighty.
