Speaker signs Office on Missing Persons bill

Sri Lanka's Speaker, Karu Jayasuriya, signed the Office on Missing Persons Bill on Tuesday, making it into a legal act, Colombo Page reported. 

The bill has received criticism from Tamil families who expressed concern about the lack of adequate consultation prior and lack of emphasis over justice for disappearances. 

Sri Lanka's joint opposition movement has meanwhile vehemently opposed the bill, accusing the government of betraying the country's soldiers.
