Cabinet paper for general Amnesty to TPPs rejected by the Cabinet

The cabinet had rejected a Cabinet paper submitted by Re-settlement Minister D.M. Swaminathan was rejected by the Cabinet, under the opposition of several ministers under the grounds that granting General Amnesty will create a bad precedence. However a consensus had been reached to consider the cases of TPPs detained for long time without charges, and to continue the initiative by  Minister of Justice, Wijeyathasa Rajapakse.
