Govt replacing Emergency with PTA – Dullas


Parliamentarian Dullas Alahapperuma has charged that having claimed that there is no necessity for the imposition of emergency regulations in the country, the Government was striving to justify its removal by making use of the Prevention of Terrorism Act (PTA).

The MP claimed that there is a clear move made by the present regime to thwart the peaceful conduct of public protests and demonstrations by using the controversial PTA regulations.

In a tweet, Alahapperuma urged all citizens in the country to mount a joint opposition to defeat efforts made by the Government to activate the ‘harmful regulations’ of the PTA.
