Publish the draft


Over the last few days we have had a senior UNP MP telling us that Mangala Samaraweera attempted to obtain some kind of 'OK' for the 'MCC agreement' from Ranil Wickremesinghe's Cabinet bypassing Parliament. Never mind that "Cabinet" has no authority to 'OK" any such 'agreement'.

We have since heard of Vasudeva Nanayakkara stating that 'this government' will never sign that or any such document.

The Island has alerted us editorially to the demolition of our sovereignty, as embedded in our legal system that is at the heart of this draft agreement.

It is a ghost document that is yet to be translated into Sinhala and Tamil and placed before the people. Far from it being so translated it has not been published even in the English used by the foreigners who drafted it.

The people would be grateful if you were to publish the text of this document as is (in English) so that it could be translated and brought towards comprehension by the well over 90% of them who have no knowledge of English. In all three languages it should be made available along with such explications as necessary.
