European Union Ambassador to Sri Lanka, David Daly last week refuted reports the EU had sought the abolishing of Sri Lanka’s Prevention of Terrorism Act (PTA) in order to regain the GSP Plus facility
“It is not a question of abolishing the PTA but replacing it with a more modern and secure legislation. This question doesn’t come from me. It comes from the Government of Sri Lanka which made a commitment in this direction in the joint resolution at the Human Rights Council in Geneva last September,” the Ambassador highlighted.
