The gezette notification signed by the President under Section 27 of the Prevention of the Terrorism (Temporary Provisions) Act was presented by House Leader Lakshman Kiriella.  
It bans the obtaining of membership in these organisations, providing leadership, using uniforms, emblems and flags belonging to these organisations and the aiding and abetting with members of those organisations.
