Colombo (LNW): Former President Chandrika Bandaranaike Kumaratunga urged all citizens of Sri Lanka to unite to defeat the brand new ‘Anti-Terrosim Bill’ which she described as “frightening.”
“Let’s set aside our political differences and recognise that we all are social activists in this place. We must unite to defeat this frightening bill,” the former President noted addressing an event held in Colombo yesterday (29).
Adding, Mrs. Kumaratunga emphasised that all the citizens of this country need to be alerted about this new bill and that such provisions will not let the people of this country speak freely like today.
Democracy will have no place and all will be arrested under the new bill, she noted.
SLPP rebel MP Prof. G.L. Peiris also attended the event.
