“Previous regime accountable for EU ban” :Anura


JVP MP Anura Dissanayake has charged that it is the mistake of the previous regime that led to the EU ban. They did not respond to the EU warnings.

He told the House:"Nearly 600,000 people are directly involved in the fisheries sector. Their families too are dependent on this sector. Therefore, about 2.6 million people, one eighth of the population of the country, are dependent on the fisheries sector. The EU ban directly affects these fishing families. The EU since 2010, warned of the impending ban, but the then government failed to take necessary measures to avoid the ban. The EU initially provided one year’s grace period and then extended it further for another 3 months. On November 15, 2012, the EU presented eight conditions and asked the government to conform with the standards.

The former government turned a deaf ear to the warning, while its international relations were an utter flop. The poor and innocent fishermen had to suffer due to the mistakes of the former government."
