‘Are you happy now?’ president asks Mangala

“See, I’ve signed the gazette notification forming the office of missing persons. Are you happy, now?” president Maithripala Sirisena has inquired from minister Mangala Samaraweera, president’s office sources say.

Prime minister Ranil Wickremesinghe and Samaraweera too, were present when the president, as the minister of national integration and reforms, signerd the gazette notification on the September 12th afternoon.

The PM too, said with a smile to Samaraweera, “Now, Mangala will sleep well now.”

Issued on the same day, the gazette says the OMP act 14 of 2016 will become into force from September 15.

Meanwhile, the government has decided to hold a parliamentary debate on September 21 on the new draft bill on missing persons.
