The Government today insisted that the Enforced Disappearance Bill has not been removed from the agenda in Parliament.
The Bill was to be debated yesterday but it was later decided to discuss it at a later date.
Leader of the House Lakshman Kiriella told Parliament that some media had claimed that the Bill has been dropped from the Parliament agenda.
He said those reports were misleading and that the Bill is still on the agenda.
Meanwhile the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) said there was suspicion as to why the Bill was not discussed.
TNA Parliamentarian M.A. Sumanthiran said that there was a feeling the debate on the Bill was postponed owing to recent statements made by the Chief Prelates. (Colombo Gazette)
