    Sri Lanka is currently drafting legislation and preparing a mechanism to prevent illegal immigration and promote the border security, Chief of Prime Minister's Staff, Law and Order and the Southern Development Minister Sagala Ratnayaka said today (14th Nov.).


    Addressing a workshop on preventing illegal human trafficking at Hotel Kingsbury, Colombo, the minister said to solve this huge problem Sri Lanka will apply strong laws very soon.


    With these new laws and mechanism, law enforcement authorities are able to make the raids and arrest of traffickers and racketeers, Mr. Ratnayaka said.


    Since this problem is expanding to other countries, Sri Lankan is eager to combine operations with foreign nations like Australia, he added.
