The Foreign Exchange Bill which presented in Parliament by the government is similar to what former Norwegian peace envoy Erik Solheim envisaged, the joint opposition said today.

It said the Bill would enable the Tamil Diaspora which was a repository of LTTE funds to invest in Sri Lanka without any control or monitoring by the Central Bank (CB).

“Solheim mentioned this at an interview with ‘The Hindu’ soon after the election victory of President Maithripala Sirisena. He said the government should reach out to the Tamil Diaspora and get them to invest in Sri Lanka,” MP Bandula Gunawardane told the JO’s weekly news conference. (Lahiru Pothmulla)

    What is wrong in doing what is good for the country. JO is not interested in doing anything good for SL but to bring back the dictatorship of the thieves.

    The J.O. and others should realise that the LTTE does not exist anymore. Tamils in Sri Lanka or abroad are not terrorists. They are all Sri Lankans like any other Sinhalese, Muslims, Malays, Burghers and Vedhdhas. They are equal and they aren't inferior to the Sinhala Buddhists. Buddhism like Islam and Hinduism preaches PEACE and not violence.Let us all build the country and bring the CROOKS
