President Sirisena in his capacity as the Minister for National Integration and Reconciliation sanctioned the Gazette to operationalize the OMP Tuesday (12).

The press communiqué indicated that the OMP will be established and its functions, duties, and mandate will come into operation with effect from tomorrow. The ministry stated that this initiative comes one week after the discussion the President had with the family members of the missing persons.
