Wed, Apr 9, 2014, 11:17 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Apr 09, Colombo: Sri Lanka military has said that the groups and organizations banned by the government could get their names cleared by going to courts.

Army Spokesperson Brigadier Ruwan Wanigasuriya told a news conference today that several overseas organizations that have been banned by the government over suspicion that they were LTTE supporters could go to Courts and get their name cleared.

He said that it was not a proscription and they could go to courts under the prevailing law and get themselves cleared by providing evidence against the ban.

He has explained that the decision to ban the organizations was taken after carrying out a lengthy investigation by several ministries and departments like the Foreign Affairs Ministry, Defence Ministry and the Central Bank since 2008.

According to Wanigasuriya, persons and organizations that have been banned have the right to prove their innocence.
