New laws on human trafficking and border protection


Sri Lanka is currently drafting legislation and preparing a mechanism to prevent illegal immigration and promote the border security, Chief of Prime Minister's Staff, Law and Order and Southern Development Minister Sagala Ratnayaka said today.

Addressing a workshop in Kingsbury Hotel, Colombo, on preventing illegal human trafficking, the Minister said that Sri Lanka will apply strong laws to solve this huge problem very soon.

With these new laws and mechanisms, law enforcement authorities are able to conduct raids and arrest traffickers and racketeers, Ratnayaka said.

Since this problem is expanding to other countries, Sri Lankan is eager to combine operations with foreign nations like Australia, he added.
