(Nov 02, 2007) The Sri Lankan government has issued a special provision under the existing Emergency Regulations on Arms Trading. According to Basil Rajapaksa, a new Member of Parliament, the provision will eventually be enacted as law. The purpose is to prohibit any Sri Lankan from taking part in arms deals, whether within the country or abroad, with the goal of making it impossible for citizens or companies to act as middlemen in the arms trade.
