Emergency laws, now in operation in Sri Lanka, will be lifted shortly.

President Mahinda Rajapaksa will make a statement in Parliament on the lifting of emergency during the forenoon session on Thursday, highly placed sources said. Emergency laws were being extended on a monthly basis ever since these were imposed, about three decades ago.

The lifting of the provisions of the emergency regulations marks a key decision of the government, aimed at bringing normalcy back to the country, after the end of the 30-year civil war. (The Hindu)

    So its India, didnt we know it?
    The so called 'Myth' didnt work either.

    Good decision.I think most of younger generations who have lived under Emergency regulations for three decades will not understand the life without emergency regulations..It's going to be a new experience.

    Because it is a condition imposed by India. We were slaves to the west earlier, now we are slaves to the East. Nothing has changed for us

    fazeel Thursday, 25 August 2011 05:34 AM

    Yes, I agree. What a wonderful thought!!!!!!

    This very important news to come from a foreign media shows how much our country is being manipulated by foreigners.

    Rizvi Thursday, 25 August 2011 06:01 AM

    O God, thanks for the Peace at last You gave us.
