The International Convention for the Protection of All Persons from Enforced Disappearance Bill which was to be taken up in Parliament yesterday was not taken up as scheduled.

MP Udaya Gammanpila wanted to know if the Bill which was the second item in yesterday's order paper would be taken up for debate. Deputy Speaker Thilanga Sumathipala replied that it would not be taken up for debate even though it was in the order paper.

There were huge protests against the Bill from different factions in the country including the Mahanayake Theras. (Ajith Siriwardana and Yohan Perera)
