June 22, Colombo: Sri Lanka government has issued an Extraordinary Gazette notification extending the Emergency Regulations for another month, from today, June 22.

The Extraordinary Gazette issued by President's Secretary Udaya R. Seneviratne upon the instructions of President Maithripala Sirisena says the emergency was extended in the best interest of public security.

"I am of the opinion that by the reason of a public emergency in Sri Lanka, it is expedient, so to do, in the interest of public security, the preservation of public order and the maintenance of supplies and services essential to the life of the Community," the Extraordinary Gazette says.
