The Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) yesterday charged that abducting people has become an unofficial part of the countries law.

Within the past two months alone, 29 incidents of abductions were reported in the media, MP Anura Kumara Dissanayake stated.

Political activists that do not agree with the government, criminals that are not obedient to the government, drug dealers that who don’t share the profit as well as people with open opinions are subject to these abductions, he accused.

Presently the “white van culture” has become a law in the country, Dissanayake said adding no arrests or action is taken subsequently.

He further stated that he would not like to limit the abductions of Premakumar Gunaratnam and Dimuthu Attygalle to a mere political motive of sabotaging their assembly as he believes it is a clear violation of a citizen’s democratic right.
